Attorney files official complaint against East Texas district judge | News
SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV)- An official grievance has been filed against a Smith County judge who ordered deputies to arrest a Tyler attorney at his dying aunt's bedside.
In July, longtime defense attorney Clifton Roberson was considering taking action against Smith County 114th District Court Judge Christi Kennedy. Roberson says he was brought to the courthouse in handcuffs when he went to see his aunt in the hospital instead of going to a hearing. Roberson's attorney says the complaint was filed with the Texas State Commission on Judicial Conduct last week.
The complaint and any results from the commission's investigation could remain confidential, unless the review board takes public action against the judge.
