IESI Files Countersuit

02-21-05 – Attorneys representing the local manager for IESI have filed a countersuit against the City of Sherman. Last week, the city filed a lawsuit against IESI claiming they mislead voters with a petition last summer. Now, IESI is saying they did everything to inform the public of the petition.

In the suit, the defendants seek a declaration of their rights to have the ordinance proposed by their properly certified initiative petition placed on the ballot for the municipal election scheduled for May 7, 2005.

IESI says the court battle is a struggle for money and control.
