Challenges to Executive Order GA-13 Login/Join

Has anyone responded to a State/Federal constitutional challenge to the Governor's executive order denying PR bonds to those previously convicted of/charged with violent offenses? The majority of the PR requests here have been denied in these circumstances, but they have only been challenges to the amount of the bond, and not the constitutionality of the executive order.

I'd love to hear y'all's thoughts.

Have have had three cases where the defense has filed a 90 day writ under 17.151. Their writ applications have just ignored GA-13 and then during the hearing just generally say that it is unconstitutional without any actual legal citation or argument. We also have a local order from the district court judges that extended the time frame under 17.151 to 120 days. All three cases the judges have denied the writ.

Check out the briefs in In re Greg Abbott at http://www.search.txcourts.gov...n=20-0291&coa=cossup. The case was decided on other grounds, but various parties addressed the constitutionality of GA-13.
