Already impeached over a raft of ethics violations, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is expected to pursue an unusual legal argument to exonerate himself in the state senate: that voters knew about his purported misdeeds and voted him into office anyway. The so-called “voter forgiveness” doctrine has roots in Texas caselaw, but looks to be a longshot for Paxton. Joining Pro Say this week to lay out Paxton’s dilemma and his unique legal calculus is Law360 editor-at-large Andrew Strickler. Also this week, rapper T.I.’s intellectual property suit against a series of dolls comes up short, and the bar exam gets a post-pandemic facelift. Finally, ChatGPT can certainly write a legal brief faster than you can, but it might also cite to cases that don’t exist. It’s a Faustian thing.
