DISTRICT JUDGE FORCED TO STEP DOWN ON SERIES OF CASES
Criminal defense lawyer Laura Cass filed a motion to recuse State District Judge Rick Davis. Judge Davis accussed Cass of being a racist and compared her to a Nazi guard at Auschwitz while she served as an Assistant DA in his court. The Nazi comments were originally made in 2001 when Cass was a prosecutor in his court. Judge Davis was reprimanded by a 3 Judge panel appointed by the Texas Supreme Court and ordered to attend Anger Management class.
Judge Davis' anger problems apparantly relapsed recently when he launched his website wherein he again commented about the incident involving Ms. Cass. Judge Olen Underwood agreed with Cass and ordered Davis recused on a series of cases one of which is a Capital Murder case. In that case, Brazos County DA Bill Turner sought to have Judge Davis recused also. Original article
