TEXAS SUPREME COURT JUSTICE SCOTT BRISTER RESIGNS

http://www.supreme.courts.state.tx.us/advisories/Brister_announcement_081709_2.htm

The Texas Supreme Court is a political machine where very little law guides the Court. I have no idea why Scott Brister resigned. Maybe he grew tired of the endless politics. Maybe he sees the writing on the wall that the Democrats may begin to win statewide races again. Or maybe, and this is where I will put my money, he has a lot of kids who are going to need a college education. Politics aside, we pay our judges way too little. The problem is, the judicial corruption in this state makes it difficult to justify paying judges more.

Maybe if they would just clean up their act, the people would be more inclined to pay them a fair wage.
