On January 31, 2013, the Second Court of Appeals in Fort Worth reversed the trial court in part in LIT HW 1, L.P. v. The Town of Flower Mound, et. al., 3013 WL 362760. Murray Joseph Rossini made the oral argument to the Second Court of Appeals In LIT HW 1 in which the court of appeals reversed the trial court in part, agreeing with Rossini that the Board of Adjustments of Flower Mound used the wrong standard when denying our client’s appeal of a building official’s building code ruling. This ruling provides a party who is appealing an adverse building code ruling in the Town of Flower Mound with authority to ensure that the Flower Mound Board of Adjustment uses the correct standard of review.
