Today’s Dallas Court of Appeals case of the day is- Lowell Merritt vs. The State of Texas!
What happened? From the opinion.
The events leading up to appellant’s indictment on a felony retaliation charge began in July 2007 when appellant’s neighbor reported that appellant “cussed” his wife. After reviewing the report, a Collin County sheriff’s deputy filed a disorderly conduct complaint against appellant in the Precinct 2 Justice of the Peace Court of Terry Douglas.
