The Campaign For DA


Weirdest Legal Note From The Weekend

Famous Fort Worth Lawyer Dee Kelly died a few days ago. He founded a large law firm in 1979 which is still in existence in Cowtown.  Bud Kennedy scanned the Star-Telegram for references to him.  This note got may attention:

When did Dee Kelly have an apartment? And John McBryde was over there with his dog?

John McBryde became a federal judge in 1990. He's best know for being pompous (and I'm being kind) which will get an article written about you entitled "Temper, Temper" and have the very conservative 5th Circuit suspend you "for intemperate conduct and abusive behavior." And if you question his integrity in court, he'll recommend you be arrested and criminal charges pursued.

But at least he had a Family Pup.
