Nonprofit organization sues the city of Progreso
The Texas Civil Rights Project is suing the city of Progreso for failing to comply with the Texas Public Information Act.
The organization is investigating how the city goes about seizing cars.
On May 12, the TCRP asked the city of Progreso for incident reports, police handbooks, procedures on impounding vehicles and a list of vehicles taken by the city from March 1 to May 12.
The city of Progreso's attorney, Javier Villalobos, said the organization's request was too broad, and need to be narrowed down.
After being unable to come to an agreement, the TCRP filed a lawsuit in September.

Correction: This story misspelled the name of the city involved in the lawsuit. It is Progreso, not Progresso. This story also misstated the name of the organization involved in the lawsuit. It is the Texas Civil Rights Project, not the Texas Civil Right Project.
