Texas AG apologizes for seizing x-rays

Latest in one of the subsidiary subplots of the silicosis saga, via Josh Gerstein at the NYSun: "In their eagerness to investigate what Judge Janis Jack of Corpus Christi described as widespread fraud in the silicosis litigation, attorneys working for the attorney general of Texas, Greg Abbott, used armed law enforcement officers to take the X-rays from a court-established depository in June. The state prosecutors said they acted pursuant to subpoenas signed by county judges, but the move angered Judge Jack, who said the action was unconstitutional and an affront to the jurisdiction of the federal courts."
