A lawyer employed in the Texas attorney general’s office is claiming that illegal conduct occurred within the state’s law enforcement defense division and has filed a lawsuit.
Michael Ritter had been working for Greg Abbott since he was hired in March 2012. He reported a hostile work environment, discrimination, falsification of hourly time sheets, and misuse of taxpayer dollars while working there, but was ignored. His report was dismissed, and Ritter was forced to transfer to the transportation division. He also lost oversight over four of his trial cases.
Judge Amy Clark Meachum denied Ritter’s petition to have the officials refrain from reprisal, but moved for the case to go forward on Friday, October 4.
