SAN ANTONIO –
A lawsuit filed in Bexar County district court last month by Texas
Attorney General Ken Paxton calls for San Antonio Police Department
Chief William McManus to be removed from office over his handling of a
2017 immigrant release incident.
“quo warranto” lawsuit, which seeks to remove McManus due to an alleged
violation of the Texas Government Code, was filed Jan. 15, court
records released to the KSAT 12 Defenders show.
warranto” is a Latin phrase meaning “by what warrant?” and essentially
requires someone in a position of authority to demonstrate why he or she
acted a certain way.
