Texas Supreme Court won’t hear veteran’s case over firing related to burn pit injuries


Recommended Posts

AUSTIN, Texas – The Texas Supreme Court has declined to hear the case of retired Army Capt. Le Roy Torres, who sued the state of Texas three years ago because he said he was forced out of his job with the state highway patrol after returning from a deployment to Iraq with injuries caused by burn pit exposure.

“I was very hopeful that Texas would come through,” Torres said from his home near Corpus Christi. “As supportive as they say they are for the first-responder community, I’ll keep the faith and keep pressing on.” https://www.stripes.com/news/veterans/texas-supreme-court-won-t-hear-veteran-s-case-over-firing-related-to-burn-pit-injuries-1.633550
