Private Reprimand and Order of Additional Education of a Judicial District Court Judge 09/10/2015
The judge's email to a colleague presiding over a custody case involving members of the judge's own family constituted an improper use of the prestige of judicial office to advance the private interests of the judge's family and raised concerns that the judge was using the prestige of judicial office to influence another judge to rule favorably on a pending motion. [Violation of Canon 2B of the Texas Code of Judicial Conduct]. Private Reprimand and Order of Additional Education of a District Judge. 09/10/2015.
