State Bar of Texas sues Attorney General Greg Abbott over records in investigation into misused funds

From Texas Watchdog:

The State Bar of Texas is suing the office of Attorney General Greg Abbott over an open records decision earlier this month that gives a legal trade magazine access to records detailing an internal investigation by the state bar.

A reporter from Texas Lawyer magazine in April requested the records from the state bar, which is an administrative arm of the state’s judicial department, with regard to fiscal misappropriation of funds by a bar employee who is also a deputy clerk for the Texas Supreme Court.
