Judge John Ovard Appoints Incompetent To Bench

Speaking of bar ratings, Judge Charles Sandoval had the lowest rating  the last time the Collin County Bar did its evaluation. (Here’s another lawyers’ survey where he was given a grade of D.) He was subsequently defeated in the GOP primary (thank you, fellow Republicans!). The ex-judge has spent the last two years trying to cajole colleagues in Collin County to give him a temporary or visiting judging job, with no success. The Collin County Observer reports this morning that Judge John Ovard in Dallas finally came to rescue, appointing the lowest-rated judge in Collin County– a distinction hard to achieve, btw — as a visiting judge in June to drug courts in Dallas County. Interestingly, Dallas County prohibits defeated judges in Dallas County from serving as visiting judges. Perhaps it should extend that prohibition to other nearby counties, or pretty soon we’ll end up with a rotation of incompetent judges from Dallas in Collin, bad judges from Denton in Tarrant, bad judges from Tarrant to Collin, etc.
