There Goes a Man

I learned this weekend that the Honorable Herb Ritchie, whom I took to task (albeit without naming him, since he was only an example of the implicit corruption that is tolerated at the Harris County courthouse because it always has been tolerated) here for soliciting money from lawyers who would be practicing before him, is returning contributions made by lawyers with cases pending before him “in order to avoid even the appearance of impropriety.”

I don’t know what prompted his decision, and I don’t care. Kudos to Judge Ritchie, and may he be a harbinger of a new less-corrupt age at the Harris County Criminal Justice Center.
