Texas Supreme Court rules AG Ken Paxton must answer questions in whistleblower case

The Texas Supreme Court ruled against Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton in his effort to avoid being deposed in a lawsuit filed against him by employees he fired.

The ruling means Paxton will have to answer questions under oath in the case that triggered the impeachment proceedings last year.


Ken Paxton whistleblowers vow to continue legal fight in court

Four whistleblowers who were fired after reporting Attorney General Ken Paxton to the FBI vowed Monday to continue their legal fight with their former boss, promising to expose his alleged wrongdoing by forcing him and others to publicly testify.

The four former employees who sued Paxton claiming wrongful termination also testified at the impeachment trial.

Paxton did not.

The Texas Senate eventually acquitted him of corruption and abuse of office charges.
