Sexual Harassment On the Other Side of the Bench - Texas Judge Ousted (Maybe) For Misconduct


The Corpus Christi Caller News has this story on Judge Terry Canales of the 79th District Court, which covers several South Texas counties. A review by a panel of appellate judges upheld a recommendation that he be removed from office because of misconduct involving sexual harassment. The panel did criticize certain procedural aspects of the Commission on Judicial Conduct's review which led to the recommendation. Judge Canales status while the matter is appealed to the Texas Supreme Court is unclear, although the Judicial Commission "assumes" he will be suspended during the appeal.
