Texas judge could soon have suspension lifted

ROCKPORT, TX

The State Commission on Judicial Conduct issued a public warning to Aransas County Court-at-Law Judge William Adams last month, but the Corpus Christi Caller-Times reports that the commission's director says she was in the process Tuesday of filing a motion with the Texas Supreme Court to lift Adams' suspension.

Director Seana Willing says Adams could have faced a more severe sanction if he appealed. She says the court could act within a week or two. Adams could not be reached for comment, but has been on paid suspension since November.
