Miss San Antonio has gone to court to try to keep her crown after being ousted over alleged insubordination.

A judge in San Antonio has set a Feb. 16 hearing on the breach of lawsuit filed on behalf of 17-year-old Domonique Ramirez.

The lawsuit names the Miss Bexar County Organization Inc. A judge Monday issued a temporary restraining order.

The suit, filed with the help of the League of United Latin American Citizens, says the teen's mother received a Jan. 25 e-mail indicating Ramirez was no longer Miss San Antonio.

Board president Linda Woods says Ramirez has not complied with rules, has been late to appearances or did not show up, and gained weight.

The lawsuit alleges Ramirez was not provided with a chaperone and transportation to events.
