Texas appeals court: Ken Paxton judge must rescind recent orders

The presiding judge in Attorney General Ken Paxton’s securities fraud case lost jurisdiction when he ordered the case moved from Collin County to Harris County, the 5th Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday. The appeals court did not explicitly order Gallagher’s removal from the case but voiced agreement with Paxton’s lawyers that he is “without authority to continue to preside over” it.
