LIttle Nell, et. al. v. City of Houston, et. al.

Immunity and Jurisdictional Drainage Fee Flow Chart


Jurisdictional Flow Chart created in response to a Plea to the Jurisdiction filed by the City of Houston and Daniel Krueger, in his official capacity, claiming the 129th District Court of Harris County, Texas, has no jurisdiction to entertain any claims by Plaintiffs which challenge the newly enacted drainage fee ordinance and the imposition of drainage charges on Plaintiffs' properties. Plaintiffs' allege that their properties are not subject to the Ordinance because their properties are not "benefitted properties" or are exempt thereunder. 129th District Court determined that it did have jurisdiction to hear these claims. The City of Houston has already filed its notice of appeal.
