The Texas Supreme Court is allowing a whistleblower lawsuit against state Attorney General Ken Paxton to move forward. The court ruled to lift a February abatement on the suit, in response to a Monday petition to the state's high court by four former employees of Paxton's office. The plaintiffs had approached the FBI in 2020 about Paxton's potential abuse of his office. The suit prompted a probe by the Texas House after Paxton asked for more than three-million dollars to settle the case. The House impeached Paxton in May, and a trial in the Texas Senate last month acquitted him of all charges.
