Open Records Request on Taylor City Attorney Ethics Problem
May 31, 2019, Taylor, TX. -- On May 29, I published an article that provided undeniable evidence that the Taylor City Attorney, Mr. Ted Hejl, violated the Taylor Ethics Code and legal ethics by filing a lawsuit on behalf of a unit of Taylor government against a client he also legally represented.
That behavior is fully documented, an ethics violation, and is an inexcusable breakdown of law and order in the community.
The article contained documented information that clearly suggests the Taylor City Attorney failed to act on reported felonies against a unit of government created by the City of Taylor in order to protect his client Mr. Komandosky.
The article was sent to each Taylor Council member. I believe the Taylor community should know if any questions were asked by our Council members and the nature of any discussions on this matter. I therefore made the following open records request.
SUBJECT: Public Information, open records, request.
