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:1

Jones Amended Brief

(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:

J Jones Appbrf

You’ll be shocked to learn that Mr. Jones filed a reply brief. Shocked!:

Jones, Jordan Reply Brief

So that’s where Jones stands. No word on oral argument yet.


  1. 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!
