At Texans for Cash Free Courts, we are proud Texans who think Texas is the best state in the United States. However, out of 39 states that at one time selected judges by partisan election, only six still do so today.
We are disappointed to be one of the six states that still tolerate money polluting our justice system, and we are discouraged by members of the Texas Legislature who defend a justice system where judges are asking for money from the very people who have cases before their courts.
Unfortunately, some of the big donors to judges are also big donors to the members of the Legislature. Sadly, if we follow the money, we believe we understand the game, and it's ordinary Texans who are the victims of this game.
When billion-dollar clients to the nine big donor law firms win 5.4 times more than regular Texans, how can we call the system a “justice system”?
We invite other proud Texans to join us in this effort of reform. Individually, it is difficult to be heard, but standing together, we can have a Texas Justice System we can all be proud of.
Texans For Cash Free Courts
Contract for Cash Free Courts
I pledge to support a resolution to amend the Texas Constitution that changes the way judicial selection is done in Texas which would take money and political donations out of the judicial selection process. Qualified judges would be appointed through a nonpartisan process instead of being elected in a partisan election, and Texans would still have the opportunity to vote to remove bad judges through a retention election system.
Voters should know where candidates stand on this important issue. The names of political candidates who are for and against Cash Free Courts will be added after all primary elections are over. If candidates wish to do so, they may provide us with a letter more fully explaining their position on the issue, which can be uploaded to this site for public viewing.
