TEXPAC Backs Supreme Court Challenger
The TEXPAC Board of Directors voted to endorse Justice Michael Massengale for Texas Supreme Court Place 3. Justice Massengale has served on the First Court of Appeals since 2009, when then-Gov. Rick Perry appointed him, and he won reelection in 2012. “After completion of a very thorough vetting process, Texas physicians believe the decision is clear: Justice Massengale will be the best choice to serve on the Texas Supreme Court,” said TEXPAC Chair Brad Holland, MD. “We further believe he will be an unwavering protector of tort reform, he will help both patients and physicians, and he will interpret the law in a fair and objective manner.” After interviewing both candidates in the race extensively, TEXPAC board members said Justice Massengale clearly articulated his belief that the law is the law and judges should not legislate from the bench.
