FROM TEXAS LAWYER

The State Commission on Judicial Conduct has issued a public admonition against a Texas jurist who repeatedly identified himself as a judge to a sheriff’s deputy who arrested him for driving while intoxicated.

According to the public admonition released by the commission July 28, David Glickler, a judge of Hays County Court-at-Law No. 2, was stopped for speeding by a Hays County Sheriff’s deputy Travis Terreo in 2015. Terreo noted that Glickler smelled of an alcohol beverage and that he “immediately identified himself as ‘County Judge David Glickler’ ” and handed the deputy a business card, which also identified Glickler as a judge.

In a written response to the commission’s inquiry, Glickler explained that the only reason he informed the deputy that he was a judge was to assist the law enforcement official in undertaking the proper procedures for investigating a public official. He also contended that he did not ask or seek any form of special treatment from the deputy.

    I‘m one of those that filed the complaint against Judge Glickler. I did it for several reasons. When he was elected he told me that he would be fair to my clients and myself, notwithstanding a longstanding animus. I had one hearing with him and learned quickly that “fairness” is not in his vocabulary. He denied an open and shut Motion to Suppress. In an effort to determine whether I had missed something I took the transcript to one of the most respected retired DA‘s in Texas. He read the transcript and told me that a judge has great discretion but this was a clear incident when the evidence ought to have been suppressed. The local prosecutor has sought to prevent him from hearing DWI cases for good reason. David Glickler is bad for the reputation of the judiciary.
