AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg heads to court this week as a defendant in a civil trial that could oust her from office.

The trial will focus on whether she's emotionally able to continue in office, whether she has an addiction and whether the public's interest is better served by having someone else as the county's chief felony prosecutor.
