A group of Texas lawyers, including four past presidents of the State Bar of Texas, filed a complaint Wednesday asking bar regulators to suspend or disbar Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton for actions supporting efforts to overturn the result of the 2020 presidential election.

Asserting Paxton has brought “dishonor” to his fellow Texas lawyers and the legal profession, the group of 16 prominent Texas lawyers and the group Lawyers Defending American Democracy said in the complaint that Paxton has engaged in a pattern of “serious violations” of the Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct.
