Federal judge rejects challenge to Texas court elections

A Corpus Christi federal judge has rejected a challenge seeking to end statewide elections for Texas’ highest criminal and civil courts, allowing an electoral tradition that is more than a century old to continue.

The lawsuit — filed by Latino voters and LUPE, an organization founded by the late civil rights activist Cesar Chavez — argued that holding statewide elections to select the members of the Texas Supreme Court and the Court of Criminal Appeals improperly dilutes Latino voting strength and denies Latinos the right to elect a candidate of their choice.
