Hays County Commissioners Court has voted to move forward with a lawsuit against Kinder Morgan Inc.

The Hays County Commissioners Court voted on April 16 to engage with the law firms of Richards Rodriguez & Skeith, LLP and the Law Office of Max Renea Hicks to bring suit against Kinder Morgan to halt the proposed route of its Permian Highway pipeline, slated to cross Hays County.

Lon Shell, who made the motions for the actions said the lawsuit will not be funded by taxpayer dollars.

As per its policy, Hays County does not share information about pending lawsuits. Additional details will be available as the law firms handling the lawsuit and Hays County deem appropriate.
