Private Reprimand of a Municipal Court Judge (02/08/15)


The judge engaged in numerous conversations with subordinates in which she used profanity, vulgar language, and made sexual references. Although the judge's belief and intent that these conversations were private, it is without a dispute that all of the conversations took place at the courthouse during regular business hours. The judge was responsible for creating and/or perpetuating a work-place environment where these types of conversations were allowed to take place and made no effort to stop the offending conduct when requested by an employee.  [Violations of Canons 3B(4) of the Texas Code of Judicial Conduct].
