Office of the Attor­ney Gen­er­al Issues State­ment Denounc­ing Court’s Shock­ing Bias in Lit­i­ga­tion with For­mer Employees

This week, the Office of the Attorney General (“OAG”) filed a motion to reconsider and a motion to enter judgment in litigation pertaining to an employment dispute with four former staff members. These filings challenged the judge’s ruling that depositions must proceed even after all facts were conceded and the defendant withdrew its opposition to the case. Contrary to Texas court rules and case law, the court ruled that litigation must continue despite the absence of any disputed issues to be tried to a judge or jury. The judge overseeing the case, a former Travis County Democrat Party Chair, heard no briefing on the matter and granted the order hastily on the basis of an email sent by the plaintiffs’ lawyer that misrepresented the procedural status of the case.

Today, the judge denied the OAG’s motion to reconsider her earlier order. By doing so, the court is recklessly disregarding legal precedent, abusing the litigation system, and displaying shocking bias in an apparent effort to prolong this political charade and interfere with the day-to-day business of the Texas Attorney General’s office.
