The ACLU of Texas, along with the Texas Fair Defense Project, the ACLU’s Criminal Law Reform Project, and the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, filed a lawsuit challenging Governor Abbott’s passage of an executive order, GA-13, which unlawfully attempts to remove discretion from judges about who can receive personal bonds.
