He’s the first Republican Judge in forever or maybe never. Read the article, people are checked for weapons when they come in except for those who work there, such as attorneys and judges. Attorneys and judges can concealed carry. That is a big time Democrat county. I’d check attorney weapons for use.
I suppose it could be a suicide as there isn’t any kind of report about what happened.
He also was responsible for a controversial child custody award. Judge Thomas Greenwell awarded custody of a 3 month old breast feeding infant child to a man who was not adjudicated as the childs parent. The case was not even assigned to judge Greewell but was assigned to judge Marisela Saldana who was present and in court the day of the hearing. Nueces County practices walk through defaults whereby attorneys walk to a judge and have them sign orders. These hearings are held without notice to the other party which was what happened in this case. This man walked into court with attorney Gregory Spivy and said the baby is his and the judge said ok and awarded him joint managing conservator.
