SAME CASE, TWO TRUSTEES, TWO JUDGES, TWO DIFFERENT SETS OF LAW - WHY?

As I said both of these removal actions from their respective elective offices should have been before one judge.  In the case of Castro Judge Flores signed an order authorizing service and citation.  In the case of Michael Vargas, Judge Bañales refused to sign such and order and according to the Herald did the following.

“Although not explicitly stated in the statute, due process may require that respondent (Vargas) have the opportunity to challenge or oppose the petitioners’ application for citation and service,” the court wrote in a letter to the petitioners. “Accordingly, the court will afford respondent a hearing to show cause why the citation should not issue and be served upon him.”


I wanted to see Judge Bañales order so I went into the Cameron County Portal.  I typed in the case number, then the names of the plaintiffs, then Michael Vargas name.  In  each case I get a message which says no such case.

This is a growing problem coming from the clerk's office.  Select parties are protected from having their cases seen on line. 

There should have been one judge for both cases.  And just as the BV predicted the two judges immediately issued conflicting rulings as to the law.  These cases are going nowhere.
