Texas Democrats File Lawsuit

Eleven Texas Senate Democrats, who are in New Mexico to avoid a congressional redistricting battle, have filed a lawsuit to keep themselves from being arrested.

The suit, filed in Austin, seeks to make sure they can return to Austin without being arrested.

Meanwhile, Governor Rick Perry Thursday asked the Texas Supreme Court to order the Democrats to return to the capitol.
