City's Chick-Fil-A fight has cost more than $300K so far

San Antonio faces multiple lawsuits and an investigation nearly a year after city leaders' controversial decision.

SAN ANTONIO — San Antonio's Chick-Fil-A fight has cost more than $300,000 so far. 

According to the latest numbers, to day, the city has paid at least $315,000, with other invoices pending. The city faces two lawsuits and a federal investigation nearly 10 months after city council voted to exclude the popular restaurant chain from coming to the San Antonio International Airport, citing a legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior. 

Over the coming months, Texas's attorney general launched an investigation and the decision was criticized by state representatives.

Since the city banned Chick-Fil-A last March, the chain has decided to stop giving money to anti-LGBTQ organizations.
