The American Board of Trial Advocates awarded two Texas jurists the honor of being a "2012 Jurist of the Year". The Texas chapters of the trial advocacy group named Chief U.S. District Judge Fred Biery of the Western District of Texas and Justice Sue Walker of the Second Court of Appeals (Ft. Worth) in a press release. The organization said the following of the honorees:
"The recipients . . . are held in the highest esteem by TEX-ABOTA members . . . They must be fair and ethical and have made significant contributions toward preserving and promoting the jury trial system."
Texas' sixteen chapters comprised of more than 1,000 members participated in the decision. Congratulations to these two outstanding jurists!!!
