Appeals court agrees to drop L-3 vs. Greenville suit

GREENVILLE — A state appeals court has agreed with the decision by the City of Greenville and L-3 Communications Integrated Systems to drop the lawsuit over Majors Field Municipal Airport.

The Court of Appeals for the Fifth District of Texas at Dallas issued an opinion Wednesday evening, noting the two sides filed a joint motion to dismiss.

“The parties have reached a settlement and request the appeal be dismissed so that the trial court may effectuate the agreement of the parties. We GRANT the motion,” said the ruling from Justice Jim Moseley. “Pursuant to the agreement of the parties, we DISMISS the appeal and ORDER each party to bear its own costs and fees incurred in this appeal.”

Attorneys for the company filed an agreed motion earlier this month to dismiss its pending lawsuit, while at the same time attorneys for the city filed a motion to dismiss its appeal connected to the same suit.

The original suit L-3 filed in January 2011 against the city in the 354th District Court sought a temporary injunction based on a proposed replat of Majors Field Municipal Airport.

In August 2011, the city filed an appeal of 354th District Court Judge Richard A. Beacom’s ruling that he had jurisdiction to preside over the dispute.
