Judge Sharon "Killer" Keller: "I Won!"

Mary Alice Robbins at Texas Lawyer (a publication of Law.com) has this interview with Texas Criminal Court of Appeals Chief Judge, Sharon Keller, who proclaims herself completely exonerated following the eleventh-hour dismissal of ethics charges.  The charges against Keller included, Judge Keller's refusal to hold open the clerk's office for the late-filing of a motion to stay of execution of a Texas death row inmate executed later that evening. 

As you will recall Judge Keller had an appliance repairman to attend to; while the ;lawyers for the late Michael Richard's lawyers' struggled with balky technology, occasioning their late arrival at the clerk's office. 

Dante describes a place where judges like Sharon Keller will find themselves, if not in reality, metaphorically, Judge Keller is already there.  I wouldn't be surprised based on the remarks to the reporter from Texas Lawyer, that Judge Keller already knows.
