EL PASO, Texas -

The City of El Paso is asking a judge in Austin to weigh in on the legality of all ballpark issues.
    
As ABC-7 reported last week, the City is going to try to prove voters gave it a mandate to tear down City Hall and build a ballpark when they approved proposition three in November.

The process is called a "bond validation lawsuit."
   
It was filed Jan. 14 in Travis County, where the City says judges are more experienced with this type of expedited procedure.

The judge will also review the plans to sell bonds to pay for the ballpark.
     
If the judge rules the City has crossed its "t"s and dotted "i"s, the decision could set precedent and help the City dismiss the citizen petitions that are trying to block the demolition of City Hall.
