The District Attorney and 8 other groups filed objections and/or concerns regarding the proposed Consent Decree filed in federal court in the longstanding federal court litigation in Harris County. The District Attorney, Kim Ogg’s brief argues that the proposed Consent Decree violates Texas law and goes so far that it will make it almost impossible to prosecute criminal cases in Harris County.
The Houston Chronicle posted a story saying that it was just a big misunderstanding and that when the parties meet, this will be all cleared up. It appears that the Houston Chronicle is intentionally downplaying the D.A.’s arguments.
