The following letter was written in response to a story about Texas Supreme Court candidate Sam Houston, "Candidate believes Texas SC too favorable to corporate defendants" published in the Southeast Texas Record on Aug. 11.
The Texas Supreme Court is charged with applying the law on a case-by-case basis not taking turns between finding for the plaintiff or the defendant.
Justices should not "keep score" to achieve an arbitrary balance of rulings for plaintiffs and defendants but should instead apply the law fairly in every instance.
If judges were to maintain a quota of sorts for winners and losers, justice would be in jeopardy.
As judges can impact our lives dramatically, Texans would be wise to learn as much as possible about all of this year's candidates so they can cast an informed vote on Election Day.
