And they deal with sodomy in an interesting manner (although there's a little irony in them caring.) If I can interpret the above paragraph, it means: "The Texas courts found the law criminalizing sodomy to be legal even under the U.S. Constitution.

That way, Texas courts would be the exclusive forum and they can interpret the federal constitution the way we want."
