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.
