Motion Filed to Request Dismissal of Lawsuit on Kyle City Manager

The Plaintiff in Hays County 22nd District Court, Cause 21-2336, styled John D. Ferrara v J. Scott Sellers, City Manager, City of Kyle has requested the Petition of Mandamus filed and served to be dismissed.

The request for dismissal comes after the illegal restraint the Plaintiff was subjected to in Hays County Court at Law 1, under Cause 21-2259CR-1, was dismissed in the “interest of justice.”

The Plaintiff has since filed a lawsuit on the City of Kyle for claims of defamation and malicious prosecution. Service is expected to occur during the week of February 14, 2022. The lawsuit was filed into the Hays County 428th District Court, under Cause 22-0255, and styled John D. Ferrara v City of Kyle ET AL.

The lawsuit also alleges exemplary damages for the inaction of the City Manager, in contradiction of his own law(s) of office.
