Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton fled his home in a truck to avoid being handed a subpoena in a civil abortion case. The subpoena ordered Paxton to appear in court to testify in a civil suit against non-profits that want to help Texas women get abortions in other states. The process server arrived at the attorney general’s house, and Ken along with his wife State Senator Angela Paxton hopped in a truck and drove away without taking the documents. The subpoena was left on the ground near the house. The attorney general later claimed that he fled because the process server charged at him and yelled unintelligibly. Later on, a federal judge quashed the court order, saying the demands to make it legitimate went unsatisfied. Regardless of the ultimate decision, a state attorney general should know better than try and skirt the serving of official court documents.
