WHY SHOULD YOU CARE ABOUT TEXPAC JUDICIAL SLATE CARDS?

After last week’s EVPGram article on TEXPAC’s judicial election slate cards, several readers wrote asking me to remind TMA members why those little red cards are so important. Two big reasons:
  • First, the justices we elect to the Texas Supreme Court and our 11 courts of appeals make huge decisions that affect our legal system. Many cases that interpret our 2003 liability reforms are still making their way through the courts, and we need to make sure we don’t allow the trial lawyers to elect activist judges who will rewrite that law from the bench.
  • Second, we make a big difference in these elections. TEXPAC has been on the forefront of helping to elect fair, impartial, and qualified judicial candidates since the successful Clean Slate in ’88 program. By distributing the slate cards to your patients, friends, and colleagues, you are playing an active role in political education. Order yours today (PDF).
