Great news! She is an American hero. The Supreme Court of Texas has ordered the release of Dallas salon owner, Shelley Luther. She was jailed for opening her business in violation of a COVID19 shutdown order.
Both Abbott and Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton voiced support for Luther on Wednesday.
State District Judge Eric Moyé sentenced Luther to seven days in jail earlier this week on contempt of court charges for disobeying a judge’s temporary restraining order prohibiting her from operating her salon.
