Fredericksburg Annexation Lawsuit Can Proceed

A court recently denied the city of Fredericksburg’s plea in an annexation lawsuit. The Fredericksburg Standard reported rulings were issued in favor of the E. 290 Owners’ Coalition in its lawsuit filed against the City of Fredericksburg. The group is opposing the city’s efforts to annex over 213 acres of land along U.S. 290 East. The newspaper reported the court’s reasons to deny the city’s plea was that they tried annexing the land despite an injunction prohibiting it. Also, the court said the city hadn’t completed material elements of the annexation process. So the E. 290 Owners’ Coalition can proceed with the lawsuit.
