The political background of Starr County in 1966

By Attorneys Robert Hall and Chris Dixie.
“I went to Starr County to defend the Farm Workers union against La Casita’s application for a temporary injunction to ban all picketing at its farms.  That hearing proved to be the first of a series of lawsuits and appeals that would engage me and my senior partner, Chris Dixie, for the next seven years.”
