Board member drops lawsuit against Greater Brownsville Incentives Corporation
A month after filing a restraining order, Greater Brownsville Incentives Corporation Board Member and Secretary Nurith Galonsky, has decided to file a non-suit against GBIC.
The restraining order kept new hire, Mario Lozoya, from assuming his role as GBIC Executive Director.
CBS 4 spoke with Rene Oliveira, who's representing GBIC in the suit, and said Galonsky didn't have a base to file the restraining order.
In the order, it stated that GBIC's bylaws can't provide for an executive director, but Oliveira said that the order doesn't correctly reference the nonprofit's bylaws.
He went on to point out that the suit was filled with errors and the arguments were without merit.
Oliveira told CBS 4 that, "it really revolved around who should be executive director of GBIC, not the violations."
"If an individual member of the board can bring suit every time he or she disagrees with the majority rule, it'll bring chaos to every level, every form of government," Oliveira said.
CBS 4 reached out to both Galonsky and her attorney, but didn't receive a response.
