Texas is a very big state and like Oklahoma, they wrote their law so broadly it invited legal attack. A ban in any form is unconstitutional, but this made it much easier for the judge.

Gov. Rick Perry decried Wednesday’s ruling, saying it is not the federal government’s role to overturn “the will of our citizens.”
“The 10th Amendment guarantees Texas voters the freedom to make these decisions, and this is yet another attempt to achieve via the courts what couldn’t be achieved at the ballot box. We will continue to fight for the rights of Texans to self-determine the laws of our state,” Perry said.
State Sen. Kirk Watson, D-Austin, urged Perry and other state leaders to “stop fighting the future.”
“They must stop governing by fear. They must stop pretending there’s some security blanket in laws that treat others unfairly,” Watson said. “The same folks who piously declare their love of the Constitution must stop tearing down the very jurists — the constitutional third branch of our government — who are empowered by that Constitution to protect liberty and justice for all.”
