A further thought about signs and courts and process and fines:
I get the impression there are probably a number of government buildings in Texas that prohibit licensed carry in the entire building because the contains a judicial or commissioners court in addition to a number of non-court offices. The recent thread on the Fayette County Court House for example.
I also gather that complaints about these buildings have tapered off, probably because the issue is in limbo while the judge in the 53rd district in Travis County mulls- or sits on - the Attorney General's case against the City of Austin. The OAG has issued letters notifying several local governments that they are in violation of the law with respect to prohibiting licensed carry in an entire government building just because it has a couple court offices in it, but has told them he is not taking them to court until the Austin and Waller County cases are settled.
Thus I expect most people are thinking "why bother" until those cases are indeed finalized.
However, depending on how much you like to see your local government squeal, there may be a reason to go ahead and file a complaint locally, and then sending it to the OAG when it is rejected (with the presumption that the OAG will issue a violation letter).
It appears to me that the fines that local governments have to pay for violating the sign law start accruing from the 16th day after that local government receives a letter of violation from the OAG. That fine is a minimum of $1000 per day. That means, for example, that if Austin ultimately loses, they are on the hook for a fine that started accruing on approximately 05 July 2016 plus 16 days, or about 21 July 2016. Thus, as of this post, the potential find accrued is a minimum of $525,000. Given that whichever way the trial court decides the matter is likely to be appealed to the next level and possibly then to the Texas SCOTUS, it could be awhile until it is finally decided...and that would be pretty big fine even for Austin's budget.
Thus if you make the complaint and your local government gets a letter of violation, the meter starts running. And it might run awhile.
I think the OAG would still have to take the local government to court to get a fine enforced, but a substantial fine would probably make it interesting for them. And the locals would be sweating bullets over it. Of course if it is your local government it is your local tax dollars, but since those dollars are already out of your pocket, and they would be going to the state versus the local government, then maybe you don't care. Up to you.
Here's an excerpt from the letter of violation issued to the City of Austin where the OAG explains the fines they are facing:
Code. Section 4 l l .209(b) of the Government Code authorizes the court to assess civil penalties
in the amount of:
• Not less than $1,000 and not more than $1,500 for the first violation; and
• Not less than $10,000 and not more than $10,500 for the second or a subsequent violation.
Be advised that each day of a continuing violation constitutes a separate violation. TEX. Gov'T
CODE§ 41 l.209(c). Accordingly, beginning on the sixteenth (16th) day following the receipt of
this written notice the city may be liable for a proposed maximum penalty of $1,500 for each day
the city remains in violation, as well as any reasonable expenses incurred by the Attorney General
in obtaining relief under section 4 l l .209(g) of the Government Code.
