This is a huge victory for the people of Jefferson County, and especially a huge victory for blogger Philip Klein and Attorney John Morgan. Judge Walker has been using his State Court to go after his political enemies such as Philip Klein. Furthermore, Judge Walker even took John Morgan's kids away from him for no reason except that the Judge is personal friends with John Morgan's ex-wife. Hopefully the 9th Court of Appeals will do the right thing give John Morgan back his God Given rights as a lawful and good father to be able to see his children.
Judge Layne Walker has been at the center of MANY scandals and illegal activities. I have been closely following the massive web of corruption in Beaumont, TX and Jefferson County. Many of my article have been about Judge Layne Walker. Here are two of my most recent articles about Judge Layne Walker: Video Shows Illegal Arrest and Perjury by Texas Judge Layne Walker and Jefferson County Deputies and also Texas Judge Layne Walker Admonished by Federal Judge for using Abusive Language and Wrong Font.
KBMT Channel 12 News broke the news about Judge Walker not seeking re-election.
from Channel 12 News:
Sources have confirmed to 12News that Jefferson County 252nd Criminal District Court Judge Layne Walker will not seek a third term.Walker has been in office since January 2003, and in recent years had been the center of some controversy, and faced several lawsuits.
Walker's decision comes on the eve of the filing deadline for the March primaries. State records show that Walker had already filed as a Democrat with the office of the Texas Secretary of State.
12News reporter Vanessa Holmes called Judge Walker for comment, but he loudly expressed his displeasure with 12News, and told her he was not going to talk about the matter. He quickly hung up before any further questions could be asked.
