Texas judge will hear ousted Miss San Antonio flap

More testimony is expected Wednesday from a former director of the Miss San Antonio pageant who says the pageant failed to follow its own procedures when it stripped 17-year-old Dominique Ramirez of this year's title. Ramirez, herself, acknowledges that she was tardy for a number of pageant-sanctioned appearances.

Pageant attorneys are fighting Ramirez's lawsuit to retain her title. The organization stripped Ramirez of her title Jan. 25, alleging she violated the deal she and her mother agreed to when she won the title. But she obtained a temporary restraining order from state District Judge Cathy Stryker reinstating her.

Former pageant director Glynda Coyle says organizers didn't follow required procedures before removing her. She's expected to resume her testimony on Wednesday.
