16. State of Texas having issues with case

There were a couple of threads on this forum concerning the State of Texas being difficult and delaying production of documents. At one point, the DOJ asked for the trial to be delayed and the court nearly granted that requests. After these threads there were no further filings or hearings on this issue and I was wondering what happened. It seems that Texas still has not produced all of the require documents and now is paying the price for such bad conduct. http://blog.chron.com/txpotomac/2012/07/latino-lawmakers-say-texas-voter-id-law-a-hardship-for-minorities/

A delay in the quick tempo of the proceedings through objections by lawyers for the state drew a rebuke from District Judge Rosemary Collyer.

Collyer said Texas has failed to provide documents on time to the Justice Department to prepare for the trial “again and again and again.”

She cut off the objections by state lawyers, and said Texas would receive “no sympathy from the court.”


The State of Texas has pissed off the court and now is paying the price for such bad conduct. It is clear from the judge's comments that Texas has continued to push matters and now will not be given the benefit of the doubt as to any documents that were not timely produced to the DOJ. Given the past conduct of the State of Texas, I am not surprised at the reaction from the court.
