More great work from Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.

Texas AG Ken Paxton threatened to sue officials in counties that refuse to lift their mask mandates.

From Yahoo:

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton threatened to sue local officials who don’t comply with Gov. Greg Abbott’s latest coronavirus-related executive order, which lifted mask mandates across the state.

Paxton’s ire was specifically directed at Austin Mayor Steve Adler and Travis County Judge Andy Brown, who said Tuesday that masks were still required inside businesses in the city and county and violators would remain subject to a $2,000 fine. They argued keeping the local mandate was allowable because it was developed by a public health authority, rather than the city council or Travis County Commissioners Court.

He has officially gone ahead and sued the city of Austin:

From The Hill:

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) has filed a lawsuit against the city of Austin for keeping a local order requiring the use of face masks after Gov. Greg Abbott (R) eliminated the state-wide mask mandate.

The lawsuit has been filed against Austin Mayor Steve Adler (D), Travis County Judge Andy Brown and Mark Escott, the the interim Medical Director and Health Authority for Austin, CNN reported.

On March 2nd Texas Governor Gregg Abbott opened up the state fully:
