Texas Judge postpones ruling in beauty queen flap
SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A Texas judge has postponed ruling whether Miss San Antonio can keep her crown after the 17-year-old was ousted over allegations of gaining weight and other broken rules.
Domonique Ramirez said Wednesday she considers herself Miss San Antonio. She also again denied putting on weight since the 5-foot-8, 129-pound teenager won the local pageant that is a run-up to the Miss Texas and Miss America contests.
Ramirez is suing to keep her crown after pageant organizers stripped her title in January. State District Judge Cathleen Stryker said she'll decide Friday whether to consider a temporary injunction that would let Ramirez remain Miss San Antonio for now.
Pageant organizers filed a counterclaim Wednesday that accuses Ramirez of violating Miss San Antonio rules "almost from the very beginning" since winning in April.
