310th Judicial District Judge Lisa Millard has Ordered Mayor Annise Parker to Stop Breaking the Law says Jared Woodfill

Houston Judge Orders Mayor Parker to Stop Breaking the Law
Houston Judge Lisa Millard granted a temporary injunction and ordered Houston Mayor Annise Parker and the City of Houston to immediately stop recognizing same-sex 'marriages' and stop providing benefits to the same-sex couples 'married' in other states. Judge Millard stated, "This court does not legislative from the bench" and ordered the injunction to stay in place until a trial date of December 2015. I filed this lawsuit on behalf of Larry Hicks and Pastor Jack Pidgeon. My co-counsel, Jonathan Saenz, President of Texas Values, stated, "A Texas Judge has once again made it clear -- Mayor Parker's executive actions to force same-sex marriage on the people of Houston are illegal. Mayor Parker's judgment and her reliance on the reckless advice of City Attorney David Feldman have once again put the city of Houston on the wrong side of the law. It is time for Mayor Parker to start following the law and stop wasting tax dollars on issues that have already been resolved by Texas voters and Texas state courts."
It is great to have a judge who will hold Mayor Parker accountable for trampling on the Texas Constitution and Texas Defense of Marriage Act. We will continue to oppose this Mayor every time she puts her agenda ahead of the law. Late last year, Mayor Parker, who is an open lesbian, directed city staff to violate the Texas Constitution by giving legal status and recognition to same-sex marriages in Texas and offering benefits to "spouses" of employees who "legally" obtained a same-sex marriage in another state. After an initial injunction against her unconstitutional actions, Mayor Parker attempted to move the case to federal court to avoid the state court decision. However, a federal judge ruled in late August that the federal court "does not have jurisdiction over this case" and ordered that the case be sent back to state court. I want to recognize my co-counsel Jonathan Saenz, Leif Olsen, and Robert Talton for their good work. I will keep you posted on the progress of the litigation.
