When it comes to legal reform, good judges matter

Posted on

Texas, which once had the biggest lawsuit abuse problem in the country, is now a leader in the lawsuit reform movement.

The changes made have helped:

  • Create and retain jobs
  • Small employers flourish
  • Bring balance and fairness to our courts
  • Improve access to health care, especially in many underserved areas of the state

To protect these reforms, it’s critical that we elect judges who will impartially apply the law as written. The decisions of one activist judge can threaten positive legislative advances that have taken years to enact.

Equally important, we must elect judges who are competent, with years of meaningful experience. Experienced judges make our justice system more efficient, reducing litigation costs and ensuring the law will be applied fairly and even-handedly.

Having judges who will advance a straightforward reading of our laws is vital. Make sure to learn about your judicial candidates before voting on July 14.

Early voting starts on June 29, 2020 and ends July 10, 2020.

Election Day is July 14, 2020.
