Posted: Saturday, August 31, 2013 12:31 am

GALVESTON — A legal motion filed by a former mayoral candidate to immediately suspend the island’s seawall parking program has been rejected by the Texas Supreme Court.

The court announced Friday it had denied a petition for a writ of mandamus filed by Galveston resident and former mayoral candidate Greg Roof. Roof had appealed to the court to ask that it command the Texas General Land Office to suspend the island’s paid parking program. In his motion, filed July 26, Roof claimed that the program violated the Texas Open Beaches Act, among other state laws.
