Ken Paxton cannot stay out of the news. He also does not hesitate to advance novel, even tenuous legal theories. I previously wrote here about the State Bar of Texas filing suit regarding AG Paxton’s law license. Now, AG Paxton has ¬†responded by filing a motion to dismiss the lawsuit. In his motion to dismiss,

Well, Attorney General Ken Paxton cannot say he is surprised. The Texas Bar Association has taken action against his bar license.

Attorney-General Ken Paxton is determined to get into trouble. He filed that very weak lawsuit in 2021 seeking to overturn the 2020 election results.

It was an extraordinary call from any elected

It used to be that chief law enforcement officers respected the courts and and the laws they must enforce. But, Ken Paxton sees things differently. The chief law enforcement officer for the state recently went on Mike Lindell’s website, Frank, and urged his supporters to contact the judges on the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals

Well, AG Ken Paxton lost another court hearing. I wrote about his loss at the district court level here. AG Paxton appealed that decision to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Austin. That court affirmed the denial of the motion to dismiss. Four senior level employees at the AG’s office complained to the

Ken Paxton fired five of his senior assistants in 2020. Four of those five then filed suit alleging whistle blowing. I wrote then that it appeared to be a classic case of whistle blowing. Whistle blowing occurs when a worker reports a violation of criminal law by the employer and then suffers reprisal from that
