AUSTIN, Texas — Attorney General Ken Paxton has announced he will be filing lawsuits against six different school districts in Texas.
Paxton made the announcement on Thursday, calling mask mandates unconstitutional. The school districts that issued mandates, defying Governor Abbott’s Executive Order GA-38, include Richardson, Round Rock, Galveston, Elgin, Spring, and Sherman ISD.
“If districts choose to spend their money on legal fees, they must do so knowing that my office is ready and willing to litigate these cases," Paxton said.
Paxton said these multiple lawsuits are just the beginning, and that he is also planning on filing additional lawsuits if school districts, and other governmental entities, continue to enforce masks or vaccines.
