Creekmore v. Attorney General of Texas, 341 F.Supp.2d 648 (E.D.Tex. Sep 30, 2004) (NO. 1:00-CV-264)
Judge: Hines, M.J.
Holding: Motion for Summary Judgment GRANTED in part and DENIED in part.
A convicted sex offender claimed that registration under the Texas Sex Offender Registration Program (TSORP) violated various of his rights. Although it rejected most of his claims, the court held that the plaintiff's rights and status were altered and extinguished without benefit of due process safeguards, but that the plaintiff could be subjected to registration under subsequent, constitutionally permissible procedures.
