Texas justice was served again on Tuesday. The Texas Supreme Court overturned a decision by a lower court judge to issue the Texas legislators who fled the state restraining orders that would shield them from arrest upon their return.
“Responding to an emergency motion filed hours earlier, the Texas Supreme Court on Tuesday blocked an Austin district judge’s order that prohibited the arrest of Democrats participating in the ongoing quorum break,” the Statesman reported.
“Gov. Greg Abbott and House Speaker Dade Phelan, represented by Attorney General Ken Paxton, argued that state District Judge Brad Urrutia’s order improperly stopped them from exercising authority specifically granted by the Texas Constitution,” the report added.
Now, we have this.
Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan has signed 52 civil arrest warrants for them.
#UPDATE: Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan signed 52 civil arrest warrants for absent Democrats.
The warrants will be delivered to the House Sergeant-at-Arms tomorrow morning. The warrants command the Sergeant take the absent Democrats into custody and deliver them to the House. https://t.co/HKMhnLoCPQ pic.twitter.com/y2r7XnrOzD
