Ken Paxton adds 3 more to his legal team.

The Republican announced on Thursday that he has selected three more attorneys to join Dan Cogdell of Houston and Terri Moore of Fort Worth, who were retained earlier this month. The Texas Attorney General’s Office has teamed up with the Harris County Attorney’s Office to stop a Houston convenience store from distributing and selling products containing synthetic marijuana. Attorney General Ken Paxton filed the suit Sept. 16 in Harris County against PN Super Texas Inc. and its owners, Phong Duc Nguyen, Hue Cong Huynh and Gam K. When the packages seized by Harris County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Task Force were sent to the lab, the results confirmed that the products contain AB-CHMINACA and XLR11, both highly addictive and dangerous chemicals listed by the federal Drug Enforcement Administration as Schedule 1 controlled substances – the most dangerous kind.

Synthetic Marijuana is considered a so-called “designer drug,” which is a substance that mimics the effects of drugs such as marijuana, cocaine and amphetamines. He is co-chairman of the American Bar Association’s National Institute on Securities Fraud. • Bill Mateja of Dallas, a former federal prosecutor, is a securities law and white-collar-crime specialist. He has overseen the Justice Department’s white collar and corporate fraud efforts and served as senior counsel to two U.S. deputy attorneys general in Washington, D.C. “My legal team will fight for truth and justice while I continue to fulfill my duties as Texas Attorney General,” Paxton said in a written statement. “I vigorously deny the allegations in the indictments, and I look forward to having my day in court.” Paxton has pleaded not guilty to two charges of securities fraud and one charge of failure to register with the State Securities Board linked to investment deals he brokered in 2011 and 2012.
