A Travis County man who is mad he can’t go drinking in bars or tubing down rivers because of coronavirus restrictions demanded the Supreme Court of Texas uphold his rights, but the high court didn’t have it.
In a self-written lawsuit, complete with references and improper punctuation, Rory Smith wants his rights upheld. Smith doesn’t say where in Travis County he lives, but he lets it known he was born in Texas and declared his powers to gather with friends, go tubing down rivers, and hang in bars, have been trampled on by Governor Abbott. Smith never took this to a trial court. He went straight to the Texas Supreme Court, where he declares, and this is reading from his suit, “Texas has a governor … not a king.” The supreme court tossed out the complaint without comment.
