Yes, Susan Hawk Needs To Step Down. But Not Immediately.

My colleague Zac Crain, having heard the news that DA Susan Hawk has yet again checked herself into an in-patient treatment facility, called for her to resign immediately. Zac is a hot-blooded man of Czech extraction from the town of West, Texas. He can be forgiven his impetuousness. No, no, no. Hawk need not resign immediately.

Great Report on the Susan Hawk Hearing

Jamie Thompson wrote our November cover story about DA Susan Hawk. In that piece, Jamie broke the news that Hawk's depression had taken her to the point of considering suicide. It's one of the longest stories we've printed in many years, partly because it was important for the city to get the full picture of its district attorney's illness but also because it was filled with so much compelling detail. Jamie covered yesterday's court hearing, the one in which the effort to unseat Hawk came to an end. Jamie filed this report for the Washington Post. Once again, Jamie got some details that no other reporter saw. Give it a read.

The DA Handling the Susan Hawk Case Is an Improv Comic

Tomorrow is a big day for Dallas DA Susan Hawk. A hearing will be held to determine whether the case to remove her should proceed and, if so, whether Hawk should sit in timeout while the case moves forward. Ellis County DA Patrick Wilson is handling the case against Hawk. No, not that Patrick Wilson. This one. Yes, it's true. DA Wilson is a founding member of After Hours Improv Theater and "has roots to the group back to a day when the troupe was known as Chicken Fried Comedy." That Facebook page of his I linked to says his next show will be March 2015. That clearly needs to be updated. His next show is tomorrow. Get your popcorn ready.
