HOUSTON - After weeks of legal wrangling the newest member of the Houston Community College board has taken his seat.
Dave Wilson attended what could be his only HCC board meeting on Thursday.
Wilson won the District 2 seat back in November.
In December, Harris County attorneys obtained a temporary restraining order to prevent Wilson from taking his oath as trustee, claiming his residence is reportedly not where his home is located.
On Tuesday, attorneys for the Houston Community College board said the college system saw no legal basis to deny Wilson his board seat.
"There is no legal impediment of him serving on the board at this time, he's been elected and there's no court order in place that would deny him the privileged of serving," said HCC special counsel Gene Locke.
At a hearing later this month, Harris County will seek a temporary injunction preventing Wilson from serving until after a trial regarding his residency.
There was also another issue regarding Wilson's race. He was accused of misrepresenting his race to voters.
