Paxton Trial Stays Put

The judge overseeing the felony securities fraud charges against Texas’ Republican attorney general says he’ll attempt to seat a jury without changing where the case will be tried.

Special prosecutors have asked that the proceedings be moved out of Ken Paxton’s home county, blaming a tainted jury pool.

But during a pretrial hearing Judge George Gallagher said he planned to “at least try to choose a jury here.”

Gallagher didn’t issue a formal ruling on the change of venue request, though. Until he does, Paxton is set to stand trial in May in the Dallas suburb of Collin County.
