Huge congratulations to former 177th District Court Judge Ryan Patrick on being appointed US Attorney for the Southern District of Texas.
As readers of this blog know, Judge Patrick is someone who I think very highly of. When he was elected to the 177th bench, there were some who were worried that he was not old enough and didn't have enough experience for the job. He was undaunted by the grumblings and quietly went about proving all to all the skeptics that he was a thoughtful, intelligent, and compassionate jurist. He did a great job.
I have no doubt that he will do the same as U.S. Attorney, and I look forward to him doing great things with the Office.
