The legal counsel of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a motion last Thursday, June 9 to dismiss the federal securities fraud charges against him in federal court.
In April 2016, Paxton was accused by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) of misleading investors in a startup technology company via a civil complaint, following Texas criminal charges lodged against him by a Collin County grand jury. In a statement, Paxton emphasized that he did not commit any wrongdoing, saying, “I did not violate the federal securities laws, and I intend to defend myself vigorously against these allegations.”
