Fund raiser loses bid lor Battleship funds HOUSTON lAP) - A state appeals court Friday dissolved a temporary injunction involving fund-raising efforts for the Battleship Texas, paving the way for the state to apply for a S5 million U.S. Navy grant. In an 11-page opinion, the 14th Court of Appeals said Slate District Judge Frank White of Houston did not have jurisdiction to enter his order in favor of Texas Dynamics Inc. The appeals court said Texas Dynamics, a Houston-based company hired to solicit funds for the rusting battleship, had not received the state Legislature's permission to sue the state. Charles J. Brink, attorney for Texas Dynamics, said a bil'l for the company to file suit had passed the House but was held up in the Senate during this year's legislative session. The company and its president. Doug Williams, had filed suit against the state and the nine-member battleship board when they did not receive the money they claimed to be owed .— 10 percent of the funds raised, including the S5Q8.000 from the S5 million grant. The lawsuit also asks for S3 million for tortious interference. Brink said. Assistant Attorney General Paul Rich said he is confident "federal authorities will honor its previous commitment:" He said the grant, state money and money raised by corporations will be enough to repair the battleship. Brink, meanwhile, said he would file a motion (or a rehearing to be heard by the entire appeals court. If that is denied, he will go to the Texas Supreme Court, Friday's ruling, he said, does not withdraw the lawsuit against the board members, just the state. "We're already had one judge rule in our favor and now 1 twl confident jurors will do the same." Williams said Jfaptoton Entered as second class matter of the Baytown.
