It seems that Texans these days go for their lawyers faster than they go for their six guns. This is all rather predictable and simply adds to the worldwide image that Americans love to sue one another.
Opponents to the state funding of the forthcoming race in Austin, Texas, have filed a lawsuit against state Comptroller Susan Combs. The suit was filed in the District Court in Travis County and claims that Combs has committed to paying the money without being legally authorized to do so. The money comes from a fund that is administered by the comptroller’s office and is used to attract major sporting events to Texas. The authorities have responded by saying that all necessary guidelines were followed and that the race is being inaugurated because it will create employment and economic development.
