Paxton’s Posse — Attorney General Ken Paxton finally has a new legal team, and boy, did he go all out! He hired a former Dallas County first assistant district attorney, as well as another attorney who is “ranked as one of the top white-collar criminal defense lawyers in America,” writes the Dallas Morning News. That top defense lawyer, Dan Cogdell, has a pretty, um, interesting (revealing?) client list. “Cogdell has participated in almost 300 jury trials in 16 states, successfully defending clients linked to the Enron collapse and the Branch Davidian standoff with law enforcement near Waco, as well as former Houston City Council Member John Peavy Jr., whose indictment linked to a late 1990s bribery scandal ended with a hung jury and charges dropped,” according to the Austin American-Statesman.
