The city of El Paso appeals an order denying its plea to the jurisdiction concerning an injunction preventing it from holding a hearing to determine whether a building had been brought into compliance with an order of the city's building commission. A district court exercising its appellate jurisdiction pursuant to Texas Local Government Code §214.0012 does have authority to grant injunctive relief under Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code §65.011(2). The order is reversed and remanded. El Paso Court of Appeals, No. 08-10-00264-CV, 01-23-2013.
