A Comal County family living in fear has dropped a federal lawsuit against a neighbor they claim shot at them.
The Risenmay family said they were terrorized because some of their 11 children are adopted, African-Americans with special needs.
The family fought the property owners' association to allow a school bus to come into the Flying R- Ranch subdivision. Following the fight, Michael Risenmay said they were met with a racist sign with the letters KKK.
According to a lawsuit filed last year, the neighbor caused the Risenmay's to live in fear by harassing them on numerous occasions. It claimed the neighbor worked with the POA to harass the family and pointed out that the POA condoned the board members behavior by not speaking up.
The federal lawsuit said a board member for the association used his tractor to block the school bus. Dash-cam video showed a deputy trying to reason with the tractor operator, who is heard saying the family knows what has to be done. He also was heard saying that things would get worse before they got better.
The family reportedly dropped the suit only after the neighbor agreed to stop blocking the bus, putting up derogatory signs, and shooting at the family.
