Petition Background

Robert Lloyd, a qualified former police officer, applied for an open County Constable position and was one of five to be interviewed. After a few opening questions, the Commissioners began to ask questions prohibited by the Texas Constitution concerning his personal beliefs related his religion, how he has voted, his attitudes toward abortion and sexual orientation. Subsequently, he has joined with the Texas Civil Rights Project in filing a lawsuit against the Commissioners Court. In defense, the Court has engaged a New York law firm funded at taxpayers expense. Please sign this taxpayer petition to pressure the Court to negotiate a settlement and stop funding the defense.
