Procedural Attack

I heard on the news this morning that a Farmer’s Branch real estate agent has sued the city over the new illegal immigration ordinance.  What’s interesting is that it’s a procedural claim rather than an attack on the substance of the issue.  The agent claims that the council considered the ordinance in closed session, which supposedly violates the Texas Open Meetings Act. 

I’ve heard a lot of heat and noise from various pro-illegal organizations about suing over the ordinance (which they all claim is “blatantly unconstitutional”).  However, so far, none have actually filed a suit. 

So at this point all we have is a procedural attack.  I wonder if we’ll actually see an attack on the substance of the ordinance?  I haven’t given it much examination, but I never really saw what made it unconstitutional.
