KSP To Appeal Ruling On Constitutional Grounds
Mar 29, 2012Word on the Street
HOUSTON -- The following is a statement by King Street spokesmen Bill Ouren, reacting to a Travis County district court judge ruling this week that the organization is a Political Action Committee and not a nonprofit corporation.
"While we respect the judge's authority, we disagree with his findings on the constitutional questions on which he ruled and are aggressively appealing the ruling. It is hard to understand why the Texas Democratic Party continues to pursue this frivolous lawsuit based on a total absence of facts and complete ignorance of our organization. We are grateful that we will have the opportunity for a hearing in the Austin Court of Appeals. Until then, we wish to thank the thousands of caring citizens across Texas and around America who support our educational efforts for their good wishes."
