Complaints against two high court justices set to be reviewed
Clay Robison: Express-News
AUSTIN — Ethics complaints against at least two Texas Supreme Court justices — Nathan Hecht and David Medina — aren't going away, at least not yet.
They have been scheduled for review the same day, Aug. 14, by the Texas Ethics Commission.
(That apparently was the same house that burned down about a year ago, resulting in arson charges against the justice's wife.)
The complaint against Hecht over legal fees stems from his representation by the Jackson Walker law firm in a dispute with the Commission on Judicial Conduct in 2006. Hecht won the dismissal of a commission order slapping his wrist for promoting President Bush's short-lived nomination of Hecht's friend, Harriet Miers, to the U.S. Supreme Court.
