Texas: Calling all Lawyers! New Braunfels City Attorney backs up Council's refusal to schedule a recall
More on the New Braunfels City Council recall. A bit of background -- petition had enough signatures, but the City Council refused to schedule the recall. Now the City Attorney is backing up the council's interpretation, and saying that the Council doesn't have an obligation to ccall for the election. On to the Lawyers! As we saw in Jasper, Texas, there is no way this holds up in court. Can't say it's a good way of stopping a recall, but it is a great method of enraging the recall proponents.
