Conspiracy against one's

Conspiracy against one's rights is not a judicial function and she can be sued.

Not Just The Judge

The prosecutor should resign as well. He was a willing "co-conspirator".

Automatic appeal for anyone found guilty in her court.

Voluntary resignation means she will still get retirement compensation. Do they ever press charges on any of these crooks?

What is the point of the DP Original tag?

There are so many Original thinkers here. Let's not just regurgitate thoughts and ideas from the broader media. So much of that is junk. Let's make our own. Let's celebrate ourselves!

He's the man.

didn't go far enough

She clearly has no concept of justice and should also lose her law license, if that didn't happen.

I'm not sure how the State Bar in Texas can decide that the DA's office won't press charges, maybe there was some kind of "package deal" worked, but it seems like criminal behavior to me.

And how about the culpability of the prosecutors

with whom she was communicating?

good point

if they participated, anything more than saying "we shouldn't be discussing this" should be disciplined or more. No doubt. It's way worse for a judge to do it though due to what it tells people about the system and the rule of law.

That put a knot in my stomach,

particularly the public statement made by the judge. I'd love to hear what Thane Rosenbaum would have to say about this case. He's the author of The Myth of Moral Justice: Why Our Legal System Fails To Do What's Right. "...Rosenbaum tackles complicated philosophical questions about our longing for moral justice. He also takes a critical look at what our legal system does to the spirits of those who must come before the law, along with those who practice within it." http://www.amazon.com/Myth-Moral-Justice-Legal-System/dp/B00...

Specifically covered is the issue of settlements, such as in Judge Coker's case, what's allowing this violator of citizens' rights to make the arrogant statement she did, saying the Judicial Commission made no judgment of guilt and nor did she ever admit to any fault: it was a "voluntary resignation."

wonder

how much money she was making in side deals?
