The Texas Senate, Texas Women Judges' Day 2021:

Beautiful video tribute: https://youtu.be/IcjZRxUCgkc

"SENATE RESOLUTION NO. 242

WHEREAS, The Senate of the State of Texas is pleased to recognize women judges from across the state and to welcome them to Austin on April 13, 2021, on the occasion of Texas Women Judges' Day at the State Capitol; and
WHEREAS, Women judges in Texas have a storied history dating back to 1925, when Governor Pat Neff appointed Hortense Sparks Ward, Hattie Leah Henenberg, and Ruth Virginia Brazzil to serve as Texas Supreme Court justices for a case from which all of the existing judges on the court had recused themselves; and
WHEREAS, The case involved a fraternal organization that had so many prominent members that no qualified male judges or attorneys could be found who did not have a conflict of interest; the women appointed to serve on the supreme court were all well-established attorneys, and these pioneering women formed the first court in the nation composed entirely of women; and
WHEREAS, The first woman to hold a permanent position on a Texas bench was Sarah Tilghman Hughes, a highly esteemed state representative who was appointed to the 14th District Court in Dallas by Governor James Allred in 1935; Judge Hughes went on to win election to the seat for a full term and was reelected for six more terms; in 1961, she became the first woman to serve as a federal district judge in Texas; and
WHEREAS, Since that time, numerous women have served with distinction on the Texas Supreme Court and on the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals; and
WHEREAS, Today, more than 1,100 women preside over courts throughout the state; they exemplify the highest standards of judicial conduct, and their dedication to public service is truly an inspiration to us all; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That the Senate of the State of Texas, 87th Legislature, hereby commend the women judges of Texas for their service and their commitment to equal justice under the law and extend to them best wishes for a memorable Texas Women Judges' Day at the State Capitol; and, be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution be prepared in honor of this special occasion.

BIG Love, Judge Hall!
The Chief Speaks: "Every two years, the Chief Justice of the Texas Supreme Court prepares a state of the judiciary message. This message is usually delivered as a speech given to a joint session of the Texas Legislature. The audience at the joint session includes members of both the House and the Senate and often also includes members of the judiciary and other dignitaries. This message is mandated by Texas Government Code § 21.004: (a) At a convenient time at the commencement of each regular session of the legislature, the chief justice of the supreme court shall deliver a written or oral state of the judiciary message evaluating the accessibility of the courts to the citizens of the state and the future directions and needs of the courts of the state. (b) It is the intent of the legislature that the state of the judiciary message promote better understanding between the legislative and judicial branches of government and promote more efficient administration of justice in Texas. — http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/Docs/GV/htm/GV.21.htm#21.004" - Source: https://www.sll.texas.gov/library-resources/collections/state-of-the-judiciary-messages/ Listen to the message here: https://www.txcourts.gov/SOJ
