Where a voter challenged an election that authorized the imposition of a sales tax, and the trial court granted the defendants’ motion to dismiss the voter’s petition for lack of subject-matter jurisdiction, the court erred in dismissing for lack of subject-matter jurisdiction because the trial court has subject-matter jurisdiction over all civil cases, and the court also erred in dismissing the voter’s petition on the basis that the court lacked statutory authority to hear this election challenge, so the judgment is reversed and remanded because the voter’s claims were not moot.
Judgment is reversed and remanded.
