Texas Local Government Code

Sec. § 174.253
Judicial Review of Arbitration Award


An award of an arbitration board may be reviewed by a district court for the judicial district in which the municipality is located only on the grounds that:


the arbitration board was without jurisdiction;


the arbitration board exceeded its jurisdiction;


the order is not supported by competent, material, and substantial evidence on the whole record; or


the order was obtained by fraud, collusion, or similar unlawful means.


The pendency of a review proceeding does not automatically stay enforcement of the arbitration board’s order.
Added by Acts 1993, 73rd Leg., ch. 269, Sec. 4, eff. Sept. 1, 1993.
