Court Denies CCEMS Attempt to Block ESD11 From Insisting On Payment of CCEMS Employee Insurance Claims

On Wednesday, September 30, 2020, Cypress Creek Emergency Medical Services, Inc.
(“CCEMS”) filed a lawsuit against Harris County Emergency Services District No. 11 (the
“District”). In the lawsuit, CCEMS complains about recent attempts by the District to encourage
CCEMS to pay old employee health insurance claims the District feels should already have been
paid. CCEMS’ lawsuit includes a request for a temporary restraining order that would have
prevented the District from withholding payment to CCEMS if CCEMS failed to pay certain
CCEMS employee health insurance claims. An emergency hearing on this and other demands
made by CCEMS was held on Wednesday afternoon in the Ancillary District Court of Harris
County. At the conclusion of the hearing, the judge denied CCEMS’s requests
