The following items are compiled from recent Texas Parks and Wildlife Department law enforcement reports.   Don’t Mess with Texas While on patrol at Falcon Lake, game wardens spotted two plastic bottles floating about 100 yards inside U.S. waters of the lake. While littering is a crime, so is fishing by illegal means and methods. The bottles were attached to a line that connected five illegal hoop nets. Over 100 pounds of carp were released back into Falcon Lake, as well as 50 pounds of catfish. The nets were seized.   Un-tagged, You’re It Game wardens patrolling the Rio Grande River in Maverick County conducted a water safety check on a vessel with three men in it that were out to set limb lines. Later that afternoon wardens discovered several limb lines while patrolling the river and none had the required gear tags attached. In total, 16 limb lines were recovered as well as one trotline. The wardens later identified the lines as the ones that were in the vessel they conducted a water safety check on earlier that day. Wardens launched early the next morning and found the individuals that had set the lines. During the investigation the men admitted the lines belonged to them. It was also found that the boat the men were in had unauthorized numbers displayed on the vessel. Citations and warnings were issued...

Texas Jury Finds Doctor Negligent for Facebook Post

A Smith County jury found Dr. James R. Motlagh, a Tyler plastic surgeon, acted negligently when he posted a video of his patient on Facebook. The video, taken in the operating room immediately prior to surgery, showed his patient under general anesthesia. The patient’s face, breast and pubic area were exposed and the patient was identifiable. In addition to finding Dr. Motlagh negligent, the jury also found that by posting the video, Dr. Motlagh publicized private facts about his patient that would be highly offensive to a reasonable person. “This jury sent a clear message to doctors to respect their patients’ privacy and to keep their cell phones in their pockets during surgery,” said Jim Rodman, attorney for the patient. Last year, Dr. Motlagh was sanctioned by the Texas Board of Medical Examiners for this...
