Towing Cases Cause Confusion

Eight people are suing Texas State Legal Services towing company because they say they were illegally towed about a month ago during a Texas Tech football game. One man, John Wolf, seemed satisfied with the outcome of his case on Tuesday morning. His, along with two other cases this week, were dismissed out of court. But the confusion is whether or not the people suing actually settled for any money.

NewsChannel 11 is being told both sides have been agreeing to not speak to the media. But one person who sued says they are receiving money from the towing company, T.S.L.S. But T.S.L.S. says yes, the cases have been dismissed, but no plaintiffs are getting paid. "No comment about that, I don't know anything about it. Everything that I know would be completely erroneous, I don't know anything about it," says LD Morrison, spokesperson for T.S.L.S.

Four more cases against T.S.L.S. are still pending.
