CHIEF JUSTICE HECHT COMMENDS GOVERNOR ABBOTT'S CHOICE FOR JUSTICE
Gov. Greg Abbott announced his appointment Thursday of Rebeca Aizpuru Huddle of Houston to replaced retired Justice Paul Green. Huddle, an El Paso native, is currently managing partner of the Baker Botts Houston office and a former appellate justice in Houston.
“Rebeca Huddle brings remarkable experience to the Court,” Chief Justice Nathan L. Hecht said, “a litigator who has spent her career in the courtroom, seven years as an appellate justice and, most recently, managing the flagship office of one of Texas’s oldest and largest law firms. She will serve the people of Texas with distinction and the Court is proud to have her join us.”
The press conference was at Austin High School in El Paso, her alma mater.
