the case of the Lingamfelter versus James Goodbread and the city of New Braunfels Ahearing on the motion is scheduled for July 28 A motion for summary judgment requests the judge hearing the case make a ruling before evidence is heard in a formal tri al The original lawsuit filed by local attorneys on behalf of Lingamfelter questions whether or not Goodbread should be allowed to take his seat on the city council The matter became an issue last May after New Braunfels residents passed an amendment to the city charter limiting the num ber of terms a council member can serve The plaintiffs in the lawsuit are questioning whether or not Goodbread who has already served four terms on the council should be allowed to take die office Some citizens believe the amendment should be retroactive while others believe voters did not intend for the amendment to include those running for council in this years election A trial to determine whether or not Goodbread should be allowed to take his oath of office will be held in August Lingamfelters attorney John Chunn could not be reached for comment Goodbreads attorney Atanacio Campos said he would not make a comment at this time A second quo warranto action was filed later by Council members Dan Bremer and Butch Benitez The two men filed a restraining order preventing Goodbread from taking his seat as a holdover candidate A hearing o n this issue will be held at 2 today This action previously named both Goodbread and the city of New Braunfels as defendants However as promised by Bremer and Benitez the citys name was dropped from the
