The operator of a charter school appeals the trial court's denial of its plea to the jurisdiction asserting immunity from the breach-of-contract suit filed by the appellee. Because the charter school entered into a contract that is subject to Subchapter I as defined by Texas Local Government Code §271.151(2), the Legislature has waived the school's immunity to suit for the purpose of adjudicating a breach-of-contract claim. The trial court's order is affirmed. El Paso Court of Appeals, No. 08-11-00378-CV, 10-31-2012.
