Revenge-Porn Briefs in Jones


The third pending revenge-porn-unconstitutionality appeal in Texas is Ex parte Jones, in the Twelfth Court of Appeals in lovely Tyler, Texas.

Again, we lost in the trial court and so got to go first in the Court of Appeals: ((In a case in which review is de novo, I have decided that winning in the trial court gains us little, and loses us the opportunity to frame the argument first in the Court of Appeals. Fight like hell and hope to lose!))

(It’s an amended brief because it’s docketed as a civil case, and I’d omitted the appendix required in a civil brief.)

The State filed its brief:
