This week we finalized plans for my second fundraiser next week at La Griglia on June 27th. See the Events page for details. I traveled to Austin on Tuesday for my first meeting as a board member on the Board for the Lease of Texas Department of Criminal Justice Lands, led by Land Commissioner George P. Bush. It is interesting to learn about the details of these oil and gas lease sales. Any extra knowledge outside of my usual law practice will help me preside over these cases when I get back on the bench! The week will end with my welcome to area teachers for our American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) Teacher’s Law School, where I will also preside over the Mock Voir Dire that the teachers always love. It’s one of my very favorite service activities. Hope to see everyone next week! Stay high and dry if you are in the path of Tropical Storm Cindy!
