HOUSTON MUNICIPAL COURT JUDGE THE SUBJECT OF CONTROVERSY AGAIN!

DID HE REALLY CALL AN ATTORNEY THAT IN OPEN COURT?

Houston city court Judge Steven Kirkland is the subject of yet another complaint by some Houston attorneys. Defense attorney Paul Kubosh went on public record with his latest concern against the second term judge. This time Kubosh claims Kirkland, while on the bench and during court proceedings, called a defense attorney a jack ass. The traffic court attorney went on to say something needs to be done about Judge Kirkland. This comes just months after Kirkland was called on the carpet for allowing members of a jury along with the defense and prosecution teams to eat barbecue together during the course of a trial. Kirkland was also the target of scrutiny after allegedly forcing some defendants to go to trial on the spot. But in the past – court officials with the municipal system say the defendants weren’t in court for their first appearance and the judge had every right to force them into a trial that same day. Despite recent events – Kirkland was also praised for his work in the creation of homeless court in the city’s legal system!
