Jury selection begins Monday, with opening statements to follow Tuesday, in the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance trial in Harris County District Judge Robert Schaffer’s courtroom. Opponents of the ordinance allege the city wrongly invalidated thousands of signatures on their petition for a referendum on the law. Last week, Judge Schaffer granted the plaintiff’s request for a jury trial.

On this edition of Houston Matters, we preview the trial as we talk with Houston Chronicle reporter Katherine Driessen.

Also this hour: As more programs and networks offer ever more vibrant streaming services, more Houstonians are cutting the cord entirely on cable and satellite. We ask tech blogger Dwight Silverman what you should know as you contemplate whether to discard your current cable or satellite provider.

On this week’s The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, “non-expert” panelists Aurora Losada, Joe Holley and Marcus Davis take on subjects ranging from the Freedmen’s Town brick saga, to more oil company layoffs, to the elimination of the “two-thirds rule” in the Texas Senate.

Plus: We present an audio postcard from the Houston Auto Show.
