Ken Paxton Impeachment Trial

On August 28, 2023, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick named Lana Myers as his counsel for the impeachment trial of suspended Attorney General Ken Paxton. Patrick issued the following statement:

“Today, pursuant to the Rules of Impeachment adopted by the members of the Senate, I am pleased to appoint Justice Lana Myers to assist me during the upcoming impeachment trial which starts on September 5. Justice Myers is an extremely well-qualified candidate with courtroom experience as an attorney and a judge.”

In that role, Myers will assist “on matters related to all rulings, orders, mandates, writs, questions of evidence, and processes authorized by the rules of the court of impeachment,” the trial rules note.

It was Patrick’s second effort at selecting a legal adviser for the trial after his first pick, Marc Brown, backed out amid questions about his impartiality.

Brown, a former state appeals court judge in Harris County — backed out of the role a day after he was announced earlier this month. After The Texas Tribune asked Patrick about a $250 donation that Brown and his wife made to the Eva Guzman campaign in 2021 when she ran against Paxton in the GOP primary, Patrick announced that Brown was declining the position, citing the donation.

Political Donation History

Myers’ political donation history appears to be less conflicted. Records with the Texas Ethics Commission show she has mostly given to GOP groups in North Texas, like the Grayson County GOP and the Golden Corridor Republican Women’s Club. She also contributed to former Gov. Rick Perry in 2010.
