UPDATE Ezzell School, a rural Texas school with 88 students, was recently granted a temporary restraining order to halt construction of an AT&T tower, which was overturned by a Lavaca County Judge this week, reported the Victoria Advocate. The structure was being built 300 feet from the school and parents voiced concerns over potential health effects from radio frequency signals, plus presented a petition with 200 signatures to the Judge.

Based on the Judge’s decision, parent Jessica Rosas, who Inside Towers reported cited the Ripon, CA case, will pull her son from the school. 

“It’s heartbreaking that we have to do this,” Rosas said. “But I don’t know how else to show that we’re serious about the tower.” 

The tower is on privately owned land less than 350 feet from the school; parents and school district officials want it moved to an alternate location.

Regarding the ruling, Judge Crawford noted, that an injunction should be, “granted to restrain an existing nuisance and not to restrain an intended act on the ground that it may become a nuisance … the evidence presented did not prove the threatened injury is reasonably certain.”

According to Rosas, “I don’t want to see anyone hurt from this. We’re not done fighting this.”
