SAN ANTONIO (AP) - The reigning Miss San Antonio is again asking a Texas court to stop pageant officials from stripping her crown amid claims that the 17-year-old gained weight and broke other rules required of the winner.
A Bexar County court Wednesday is scheduled to revisit the fallout between Miss San Antonio 2011 Domonique Ramirez and Miss Bexar County Organization Inc. That's the organization that runs the local pageant that is a run-up to the Miss Texas and Miss America contests.
Ramirez said pageant organizers have harassed her regarding alleged rules violations, including gaining weight and bringing her boyfriend to events.
Pageant rules require the winner to maintain the size they were the day they signed the contract.
Ramirez is suing to stop her title from being taken away.
