HOUSTON (AP) - Some of the 15 Texas school districts that have been sued in the past week for defying Republican Gov. Greg Abbott's ban on mask mandates are pushing back against the lawsuits.

One school district said Wednesday that it doesn't have such a mandate and isn't sure why it's being sued, while another said the lawsuit against it was filed in a "cowardly manner."

Keeping his promise to file lawsuits over what he has described as "unconstitutional mandates," state Attorney General Ken Paxton began suing school districts last week.
