A recent decision by the Texas Supreme Court is breathing new life into an old dispute between the city of Bryan and the Texas Municipal Power Agency (TMPA).

That ruling states that litigation over electricity should be resolved by the courts, not the Public Utility Commission.

It has reactivated a 10-year old lawsuit filed by TMPA against Bryan. The dispute centers around electric rates TMPA charged Bryan along with issues related to how the agency was being run.

Since TMPA is located in Carlos, the case is filed in 506th District Court in Grimes County. The Bryan city council announced Tuesday the hiring of the law firm of McGinnis, Lochridge and Kilgore to represent the city.
