Dallas County has excellent judges and it is always a pleasure appearing before them. But today was not the best day for several in the press.
Criminal District Judge Etta Mullin told a Dallas lawyer that he could not appear in her court because he was wearing shorts. And a knee brace with tubing. The attorney had just undergone a reconstructive knee surgery and apologized profusely to the judge for his appearance. Maybe he should have had the case heard on Casual Friday?
And the Dallas Morning News reported that a Texas appeals court just authorized the release of inflammatory court records about Civil District Judge Carlos Cortez. The judge has no criminal convictions and has denied the claims. I am sure that he will be able to successfully resolve the situation.
