Texas AG Reaches $3.3M Settlement with Whistleblowers Alleging Retaliation

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) reached a tentative settlement with four ex-employees on Friday, agreeing to pay them $3.3 million after they were fired for reporting him for alleged bribery and abuse of office.

In addition to the multimillion-dollar payment, Paxton agreed to provide a statement saying that he “accepts that plaintiffs acted in a manner that they thought was right and apologizes for referring to them as ‘rogue employees.’”

The Texas attorney general also agreed to take down a press release that similarly referred to the whistleblowers as rogue employees.

The settlement comes more than two years after the four former employees filed a whistleblower lawsuit against Paxton, accusing him of retaliating against them for reporting the alleged misconduct.
