Congratulations to our two new Judges, Lisa Jarrett and Lori Valenzuela.
Attorneys selected for 2 new courts
Gov. Rick Perry on Thursday appointed two San Antonio women, both Republicans, to district court judgeships.
Both Lisa Jarrett and Lori Valenzuela are former assistant district attorneys now in private practice.
Jarrett will serve as judge for the newly created 436th District Court, which will specialize in juvenile cases. She'll be sworn in Thursday, with her first docket call on Oct. 5.
Valenzuela will take over the new 437th District Court in mid-December. She'll handle criminal felony cases.
