Update: 9/4/2016- Andy Lucas as the State of Texas filed a motion with the Texas Supreme Court in this civil case that he has lost TWICE in the appeals court and the judgement is against The State of Texas (As you see below, Somervell County has already paid, twice, from OUR tax money for Andy Lucas, AS THE STATE OF TEXAS, outside attorney expenses).
Update 12/6/2019- Lucas lost twice in the Texas Supreme Court as the State of Texas rep. Case went back down to District Court, NOT to re-adjudicate the case, but to assess court costs, atty fees and sanctions. Here's the judgment which was jointly and severally against both the State of Texas and also Darrell Best. Harper can get the judgment from either or parts from both, it's his choice. The State Attorney General's office was contacted about who actually pays the judgment of the State of Texas and they said the county, ie, Somervell County, is responsible, that they are not immune from lawsuit, and the reason for this is that Lucas action in taking on this case was discretionary. So far, and it's been a couple of months, Lucas and Somervell County have not paid what they're responsible for.
Saw something earlier today on Facebook that showed me that there are some that are either attempting to mislead others or haven't taken the time to READ the case. So...
- The petition that Darrell Best entered to try to remove Paul Harper from office was a CIVIL case, NOT a criminal case. Update: 12/2019-it was actually Ron Hankins that wrote up the petition FOR Best, keeping it secret from the public because he otherwise would have had a conflict with the board that he didn't want the board to know. There were 3 main points in the petition, all of which involved freedom of speech and freedom to petition. (And which the 10th court of appeals fully agreed with FOR Harper). Almost anyone can put in a petition, can be entirely whackadoodle, but it's almost anyone's right to go petition their government.
