Civil Rights Group Files Complaint Against Federal Judge

February 12, 2013

A Texas civil rights group has submitted to the Fifth Circuit a judicial misconduct complaint against U.S. District Court Judge Lynn Hughes of Houston, alleging that he has made "racially intolerant comments" and requesting that he step down or be disciplined. "Some things you have to do because they are so outrageous," said the Texas Civil Rights Project director, who wrote the judicial conduct complaint against Hughes.
