Former Rockport resident and attorney Steve Fischer was recently confirmed by the State Bar of Texas board of directors to serve on the State Commission on Judicial Conduct for the next six years, pending what is typically a routine legislative approval.

The Commission investigates allegations of judicial misconduct or incapacity. In case where a judge is found to have engaged in misconduct or to be permanently incapacitated, the Texas Constitution authorizes the Commission to take appropriate disciplinary action, including issuing sanctions, censures, suspensions, or recommendations for removal from office.
