Texas Courts In Crisis

No matter the issue— immigration, health care, environment, privacy, voting rights, ethics—the federal court system will continue to play an increasingly important role in the lives of all Texans. Unfortunately the federal courts in Texas are in a state of emergency because there are not enough judges on the bench to hear the number of cases piling up. Today, Texas has seven empty federal trial and appellate court seats, six which have been deemed judicial emergencies. Pending nominees, Gregg Costa and David Guaderrama, have bipartisan support among Senate Judiciary Committee members but because of political games in Washington, they have waited more than six months to be confirmed.
So save the date and come join us on April 3rd!
