Attorney General Greg Abbott's office emailed this press release regarding today's trial:
Plaintiffs Drop Lawsuit That Attempted to Prevent
The State From Enforcing Election Law Provisions
Six Individuals, Texas Democratic Party Drop Lawsuit
MARSHALL – Six individual plaintiffs and the Texas Democratic Party today agreed to drop a lawsuit that sought to prevent the Texas Attorney General from enforcing specific portions of the Election Code. After initially claiming that a law governing mail-in ballots was unconstitutional, the plaintiffs dropped their lawsuit just before a trial was scheduled to begin in federal District Judge T. John Ward’s East Texas courtroom. Today’s agreement to dismiss marked the latest in a string of victories for the State of Texas, which consistently maintained that its efforts to protect the integrity of the elections process were entirely constitutional.
