Bungy Over Texas sued the county in United States District Court in San Antonio in 1993, alleging that county officials had conspired with Preiss Heights arca home owners to put the bungy jump operation out of business and that the Sheriffs Department had not properiy investigated a shooting incident at the business the day in opened, July 4, 1991. Claims against four individual home owners in the arca and against the Preiss Heights Homeowners Association were dismissed earlier. The case was dismissed with prejudice, meaning the decision cannot be appealed. Settlement papers were filed Tuesday with the court in which Bungy Over Texas agreed to take nothing and dismiss all claims. The county has also dismissed its counterclaim alleging that the suit had been brought in bad faith. Bungy Over Texas and two contractors that worked on the site had been seeking more than S12 million in damages County Attorney Nathan B. Rhein-lander said the county has liability insurance that helped pay to defend the lawsuit, but that the county’s share of the cost was at least SI 0,000. “I believe they found these allegations difficult if not impossible to prove," said Rheinlander, "in that they never happened." Bungy Over Texas, located near River Road, had run into problems with the county and area home owners over parking on the streets around the business, environmental issues and safety at the site, Rheinlander said. “Our interest in this business was only to determine what, if any, regulatory authority existed over such an innovative and possibly dangerous operation,’’ Rheinlander said. Bungy Over Texas owner Linda Meyer was unavailable for comment at press time. The second case, brought by former county jailer Harold A. Krueger, was also dismissed with prejudice. Krueger had claimed false arrest, malicious prosecution, and negligence by Sheriff Jack Bremer and the county. Krueger was arrested and charged with impersonating a peace officer on July I, 1991 when he confronted a trespasser, identified himself as a police officer, handcuffed the man and held him at bay with a shotgun until police arrived, according to court documents. He was acquitted of the charge at t «-• a1 in December 1991 and filed suit against Bremer and the county in March 1992.
