Attorneys Really Want D’Metria Benson Off Bench

Y’all remember Judge D’Metria Benson, right? She presided over the Episcopal School of Dallas lawsuit that was covered so relentlessly by Claire St. Amant on this blog back in 2011. She’s also been deemed one of Dallas County’s worst judges. That’s why a group of anonymous attorneys have created a website, DMetriaWatch.com, that’s dedicated to getting her voted off the bench.

The people behind the site genuinely believe several things:

We genuinely believe that D’Metria Benson is inexcusably rude to both attorneys AND their clients.

We genuinely believe D’Metria Benson does not prepare for hearings.

We genuinely believe D’Metria Benson does not have an adequate knowledge of the law.

We genuinely believe D’Metria Benson does not have a judicial temperment; in fact she has the opposite temperment.  She is unfit to sit on the bench.

The list goes on and on.

If you’d like to run against Benson, the filing period to get on the ballots for the 2014 primaries is Nov. 9 through Dec. 9.

    A lawyer should use the law’s procedures only for legitimate purposes and not to harass or intimidate others. A lawyer should demonstrate respect for the legal system and for those who serve it, including judges, other lawyers and public officials.

    A lawyer shall not make a statement that the lawyer knows to be false or with reckless disregard as to its truth or falsity concerning the qualifications or integrity of a judge.

    A lawyer shall not engage in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation.
