Attorney General Ken Paxton

AUSTIN October 8, 2019 – Attorney General Ken Paxton today gave the following statement after arguing in support of the University of Texas at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit:

“Those arguing against the removal of Confederate monuments at the University of Texas simply do not have the standing required to challenge the university’s removal or relocation of monuments on campus. The district court correctly dismissed the case, and the Fifth Circuit should affirm that decision.”
