In an extraordinary and historic Texas Impeachment, Dan Cogdell defended Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. On September 16, 2023, members of the Texas Senate – acting as jurors – acquitted General Paxton of 16 charges alleging bribery, abuse of power, and unfitness of office. Four other charges were dismissed outright. Cogdell, along with members of the Ken Paxton defense team, had just three months to prepare for the one-of-kind proceeding that was streamed live and witnessed across the United States and the world.
