Legal Reality Newsletter 19 September A. D. 2011

19 September A.D. 2011

Texas numbers its AG Opinions with the initials of the AG at the time of the opinion.  So, “GA” does not mean the county in “this state” called STATE OF GEORGIA.  It means “Greg Abbott.”

If a notary were a “state officer,” then there might have to be some accommodation in the retirement plans, and in the way “taxes” are handled, and in the way issues of liability for STATE are addressed, whether it’s a phony “mortgage” document or a car wreck.  If a notary is not a “state officer,” one has to wonder from whence comes the authority to perform that job.

There’s a very good and popular Broadway show called “Best Little Whorehouse in Texas,” which is also a movie, and one of the musical numbers is called “The [Governor’s] Sidestep.”  Here, we see the adaptation of that theme by the AG’s Office.

It’d be a great research project to find out how many other STATEs are also this confused about such a simple question.  Chances are good that a Notary is a “state officer,” or else the answer would have been clearly in the negative.  In this day and age of mortgage fraud, that’s an angle that no STATE is going to rush to advocate, advance, or market.

Accordingly, we cannot definitively determine whether a notary is a state officer. ****
