In the Best v. Harper civil suit, the Judge had to school the attorneys. Andrew Lucas is the current Somervell County Attorney and he is the attorney representing the State and Best in this matter. Ron Hankins is the former Somervell County Attorney and he provided an affidavit for this particular 'emergency' hearing to keep only one of seven board members from discussing Ray Reynolds employment at a board meeting by the board that legally has that duty.

I don't like trying to summarize what a Judge says as a lot of times I find myself leaning over to my attorney asking what the Judge means because like most people I have no legal training and don't understand half the legal jargin so I will just go ahead and quote the case
You are asking me to -- well, and basically do a prior restraint, which we all know -- we studied right from the first year of law school -- is the most extreme remedy you can take in any type thing. You are stopping something from happening before it ever gets there, you know; and generally we -- we don't do that.
And, you know, this to me -- and maybe I am just reading the undercurrent, just hearing the testimony, but I saw this was probably coming. I mean, when it was three to three, you know, they had a stalemate. But when -- when Harper -- I mean when he went back on the Board, I anticipated that something like this was probably going to happen; and then it was going to come down to some type of vote.
By the way, for those that are wondering after reading this, yes Ron Hankins DID file an affidavit in my case causing me more attorney fees and he did NOT recuse himself from voting against the District reimbursing me for those attorney fees he himself caused by filing this affidavit.
