Office of Attorney General of Texas Ken Paxton
AUSTIN – Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton continues to actively uphold Texas law in the face of unlawful actions taken by Travis County judges, today filing a petition for a writ of mandamus with the Texas Supreme Court:
“The rogue actions of Travis County judges do not withstand the scrutiny of law. The same-sex marriage license issued yesterday is not valid because it conflicts with the Texas Constitution and State law—the license is therefore void ab initio. The filing we made today with the Texas Supreme Court confirms these points.”
