There’s still no answer in the West Tawakoni city council court room battle. An appeals court will be asked to determine whether a West Tawakoni city council member who ran unopposed for re-election on the November 6th ballot will be able to take office.

A hearing had been scheduled in the 196th district court Tuesday morning to consider an emergency motion seeking to reform a judgment  filed last month against Carol Solomon.

Solomon was unopposed on the ballot and seeking the place 4 seat on the council but was ordered removed from the council after being found guilty of official misconduct following a civil trial.

However, Judge Steve Tittle said prior to the hearing, both sides agreed to the court of appeals for the 5th district of Texas at Dallas.

Solomon’s attorney filed a motion arguing his client should not have been immediately removed from the council as she was never charged with a crime.
