Lubbock has lost a huge battle in its ongoing legal campaign against businessman Ted Parker. From 2004 through early 2007 Parker's company, A.A.G., was the city's health insurance administrator. The city sued the company claiming Parker owed taxpayers a refund. He denied ever taking any of the city's money, though he did admit doctors, hospitals and clinics were sometimes overpaid.
Parker counter sued the city and there was a series of lawsuits back and forth. Those lawsuits were filed in Lubbock, Dallas, Fort Worth, and Austin. Monday, we learned that the city of Lubbock lost one such lawsuit in Tarrant County. A judge ruled that the city cannot hold Ted Parker personally responsible.
A source tells KCBD NewsChannel 11 that the ruling could impact the other ongoing lawsuits.
