HOUSTON – The Harris County Republican Party filed a lawsuit against Houston Tuesday hoping to stop it from extending same-sex benefits to city workers.

The suit claims the new policy violates the City Charter and Texas Constitution.

The City said it expects a judge to throw out the suit because the plaintiffs don’t have standing.
