What You Need to Know
- The Austin Court of Appeals rejected the attorney general’s petition to find a whistleblower settlement agreement enforceable.
- Without stating an opinion, the appellate court denied the petition.
- Two trial courts have already found the settlement agreement was conditioned on actions that didn’t take place and is not enforceable.
The Third District Court of Appeals rejected a petition for writ of mandamus that alleged the mediated settlement agreement between Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and the whistleblowers is enforceable.
The appellate court’s latest decision in the whistleblower case throws the case back to the Travis County 250th District Court, which had already ruled that there was no agreement and the discovery requested by the plaintiffs should go forward.
