U.S. District Judge Denies Gray Residents Request
A United States District judge has denied a request by attorney Alan Woodruff and five Gray residents to halt Johnson City’s annexation plans. They had hoped to stop them until a lawsuit could be heard. Knoxville Judge Leon Jordan explained that the plaintiffs have failed to identify what right or constitutional amendment is being violated. Jordan says that the lawsuit against the state could not be sustained. He says the state has certain immunities from suit in federal court and no exceptions to that immunity were demonstrated. Woodruff had claimed constitutional vagueness with a motion contending that state statutes governing annexation deny them due process rights. Planning officials say they have not initiated any annexations since that suit was filed. (bg)
