Judge Issues Gag Order in City Insurance Feud

The judge presiding over a contract dispute between the city and its former health care provider has issued a gag order Thursday.

State District Judge Ruben Reyes said he based his decision on reports in the media. He said the City's decision to go public is bad for both parties, and the city as a whole.

Mayor David Miller, City Manager Lee Ann Dumbauld, and council members Floyd Price, Phyllis Jones, and Linda DeLeon were subpoenaed for Thursday's proceedings. City Secretary Becky Garza, Council Member John Leonard, and an attorney for former City Council member, Tom Martin, also attended.

The City of Lubbock and American Administrative Group now have until December 7, 2007, to submit evidence and paperwork to the court. A hearing is scheduled for February 21, 2008.

Both the City and AAG are now contacting the Texas Attorney General for clarification about the gag order, and its effect on future open records requests.
