State of Texas settlements and judgements: About this collection

Published March 14, 2015

The state of Texas has been incorrectly obscuring information about hundreds of legal settlements and court judgments worth millions of dollars, an American-Statesman review of legal records from a dozen state agencies shows.

The Office of Attorney General must report at least monthly to the Legislative Budget Board details of every legal settlement and judgment greater than $5,000 paid by state government.
