Attorney General Ken Paxton's pastor sues lead witnesses in criminal case

AUSTIN Attorney General Ken Paxton's pastor has sued the lead witnesses against him in his upcoming criminal trials.

Last week, Prestonwood Baptist Church Executive Pastor Mike Buster filed a lawsuit against Rep. Byron Cook and Florida businessman Joel Hochberg, the two men named on Paxton's fraud indictments. Paxton attends Prestonwood's main campus in Plano.

Buster alleges that Cook and Hochberg bilked him out of about a half-million dollars, described as "a substantial percentage of his personal net worth." Cook was manager of an energy asset management company that Buster says recommended he purchase mineral rights from Cook and Hochberg "at exorbitant markups and after very short holding times."

The asset management company did not disclose that its own managers would benefit from the sale, Buster adds, omissions he said in part caused him "to lose virtually his entire investment." Paxton, who was also manager of the company, is not mentioned in the suit.
