Quotes

"The issue with that is, what is the rational basis for looking at just a restaurant and not other public places?" Welch asked
Referring to medical staff who had seen the inmate before he died, the A G 's motion states: "Clearly established law permits Thaler, Stephens and Livingston to rely on those medical professionals to bring to security administrators' attention that a particular inmate's medical needs required a specific environment such as air-conditioned housing. Absent medical staff making such a diagnosis and recommendation, clearly established law does not require prison officials to make a medical diagnosis, finding or determination, by policy or otherwise."
'There's a lot of "thus sayeth the lord,"' Niederhauser said. The letters continue along the lines of "let us worship how we want to worship, and if you don't, there's imminent warnings of chaos" he said
"I will not stand idly by while our citizens are under assault" Gov. Rick Perry said during a media conference at the Texas Capitol
