ERO referendum petition saga: City of Houston files response to request for temporary injunction

The City of Houston has apparently hired three premier law firms to represent it in defending against the plaintiffs’ state-court petition.  Those law firms are Susman Godfrey LLP, Haynes & Boone LLP, and Fulbright & Jaworski LLP.  The three law firms have each listed three or four attorneys on the pleadings.  That makes 14 attorneys on the pleadings for the City of Houston, including those from the City’s legal department.

Their response in opposition to the request for temporary injunction is here:
