BREAKING: Judge Approves Temporary Restraining Order Against Cityplace Sam’s Club

Share News:


Judge Emily Tobolowsky has granted a temporary restraining order against the proposed Cityplace Sam’s Club development, which will prevent the City of Dallas from issuing permits for construction.

Cityplace residents have formed a neighborhood group called the East Village Association and filed a request for a temporary restraining order and permanent injunction against the City of Dallas and the Dallas City Plan Commission to stop the development earlier this week. Yesterday the Plan Commission voted to approve the development 11 to 4 after the 162nd District Court ruling. Today’s action, though, means that residents have time to organize a case against the development.

“We want to go back to square one,” said Anthony Ricciardelli, one of the resident’s attorneys, on Unfair Park yesterday, “and let the residents who should have had a chance to speak out last year have a chance to speak out before a decision is made.”

    According to WFAA, the Trammell Crow folks slammed the community after the hearing, calling them a bunch of “late bloomers,” and continuing to accuse the neighbors of having known about the plan all along… but not doing or saying anything about it… until now, for some reason. I guess the Trammell Crow folks must think that if they repeat the same lie long enough, it becomes the truth.
