An effort to repeal Houston’s Equal Rights Ordinance won’t go before voters this year.

On Friday, a state district judge scheduled a trial for Jan. 19, 2015, to determine whether the petition has enough valid signatures to qualify for the ballot. Judge Robert Schaffer set the trial after opponents of the ordinance agreed to drop their request for an injunction that sought to force a public vote on the ordinance in November 2014, the Houston Chronicle reports. Opponents’ injunction request was also rejected by an appeals court, which said it would only consider the matter after the district court issues a decision.
