Before JOHN R. BROWN, Chief Judge, and WISDOM and AINSWORTH, Circuit Judges.
Appellants Union Water Supply Corporation and others suing individually and on behalf of the class they represent appeal from an order entered in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas dismissing their claims and lifting a temporary restraining order formerly imposed by the Court. The lower court found the issues sought to be adjudicated by appellant Union Water Supply res judicata and that the individual Appellants lacked standing to question the constitutionality of the Wagstaff Act.
After carefully reviewing the record we perceive no error and therefore affirm based upon the lower court's opinion. Union Water Supply Corporation v. Vaughan, 355 F.Supp. 211 [S.D.Tex.].
