I'm seeing news stories that Austin was fined $9000 for "violating Texas open carry laws." :confused5 :confused5

A Travis County judge ruled Thursday that the city of Austin violated open-carry laws when it stopped a licensed resident from carrying firearms at City Hall.

"At issue is whether certain government agencies are exempt from the state's open carry law, passed in 2015, which allows Texans with a license to openly tote their handguns in a hip or shoulder holster."
Journalism and journalistic integrity are dead. Can't even report the basic facts correctly.

:iagree:

Today "journalistic integrity" is even more of an oxymoron than "military intelligence".

The City of Austin violated the state's open carry law on six occasions, the court indicated, and ordered the city to pay a fine of $1,500 for each violation.
I guess they copy off of each other.

It saves reporters a lot of time to just cut and paste. You know how tedious it can be doing actual research. :smilelol5:

The Texas Attorney General filed an appeal of the decision of the trial court in the Austin City Hall case on 01 August 2019.

The appeal is filed in the Third Court of Appeals, which handles Travis and 19 other counties.

The appeal case number is 03-19-00501-CV. The online status can be checked at http://search.txcourts.gov/CaseSearch.a ... 03&s=c

Just put in the appeal case number in the right spot and click the search button.

No indication as to exactly what is being appealed. The Texas AG won a judgment against the City of Austin requiring it to pay some fines.
