Defense attorney Bill Mateja of Polsinelli law firm in Dallas said that throughout the process, Paxton and his legal team were confident that the grand jury would take no action regarding the real estate transaction and would not refer the matter to the District Attorney’s Office.
“We would like to thank the special prosecutors for their diligence in reviewing all aspects of this matter and for reaching out to General Paxton to obtain his cooperation in their investigation,” Mateja said in a prepared statement.
In January, the grand jury confirmed an investigation into Paxton’s role as the member of a limited liability company that owned land eventually sold to the county for the appraisal district headquarters building.
Paxton and his attorneys have said that he had no part in the sale or a prior rezoning of the land to pave the way for the project.
