Harris County v. Texas

Docket number

Plaintiff claimed that state law that abolishes county-appointed election administrator and transfers responsibilities to elected officials, and applies solely to Harris County, violated state constitution’s ban on local or special laws about certain subjects, including county affairs and elections. In August 2023, the trial court granted the plaintiffs an injunction against the law and the state appealed to the Texas Supreme Court. The plaintiffs subsequently filed a notice of dismissal ahead of the planned oral argument. On February 8, 2024, the court dismissed the case without prejudice.
