SBOT President-Elect Race

Posted By Administration, Thursday, March 2, 2017

State Bar of Texas certifies petition candidate for president-elect race

 

Joe K. Longley of Austin will join Chad Baruch of Dallas and Laura Bellegie Sharp of Austin as a candidate for president-elect of the State Bar of Texas.

 

On February 28, Longley was approved as a petition candidate after submitting 5,332 eligible signatures from State Bar members, gaining him a place on the ballot. Under the State Bar Act, any member of the bar meeting certain eligibility requirements may run for president-elect by submitting a petition signed by at least 5 percent of the State Bar membership.

 

State Bar members will vote April 3 to May 2, and election results will be announced May 2. The winner will serve as president of the State Bar of Texas from June 2018 to June 2019.

 

Joe K. Longley is a solo practitioner in Austin, specializing in consumer and policyholder class actions. His Austin office overlooks the UT Tower and the Capitol.

 

In 1973, Longley co-authored and nurtured the passage of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices-Consumer Protection Act, together with the private remedies sections of Article 21.21 (Now Chapter 541) of the Texas Insurance Code. Since then, he has co-authored Chapters 542 (prompt pay) and 544 (unfair discrimination) of the Insurance Code, the Texas Fair Debt Collections Practices Act, the Texas Home Solicitation Act, and landlord-tenant protections.

 

Longley has authored numerous seminar papers, taught insurance law at the University of Texas School of Law, and served on the State Bar of Texas Board of Directors, the District 9 Grievance Committee, and as chair of the State Bar Consumer Law Section, now called the Consumer and Commercial Law Section. In 2011, he received the State Bar Insurance Law Section’s Insurance Legend Award.

 

Longley and his wife, Maggie, have three grown children and have been blessed with five grandchildren.

As previously announced, the State Bar of Texas Board of Directors on January 20 approved the nominations of attorneys Chad Baruch of Dallas and Laura Bellegie Sharp of Austin as candidates for president-elect.

 

Chad Baruch is certified in civil appellate law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. A longtime solo practitioner, Baruch is now a shareholder in Johnston Tobey Baruch in Dallas.

 

Baruch has served as a member of the State Bar Board of Directors and Executive Committee and as chair of the Texas Bar College, Council of Chairs, Consumer and Commercial Law Section, and Individual Rights and Responsibilities Section.

 

A frequent continuing legal education speaker, Baruch received the 2015 State Bar of Texas Gene Cavin Award for lifetime contributions to CLE and the 2016 Texas Bar Foundation Dan Rugeley Price Memorial Award for excellence in legal writing and commitment to the profession. The Texas Access to Justice Commission has named him a Pro Bono Champion.

 

Alongside his legal career, Baruch has served as a college and high school head basketball coach and government teacher. He received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Minnesota and his law degree from the University of Minnesota Law School.

 

Laura Bellegie Sharp is an AV-rated trial attorney handling all forms of litigation for the Sharp Firm in Austin.

Sharp has served on the State Bar of Texas Board of Directors and the State Bar of Texas Insurance Trust Board of Directors and is a current member of the board of the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Sharp was a member of the bar’s Court Rules Committee, the Grievance Committee, and the Women in the Profession Committee. She is a Texas Bar Foundation life fellow and a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association.

 

Sharp was the 2003-2004 president of the Austin Bar Association and held director and officer positions from 1998 to 2003. She is a founding fellow of the Austin Bar Foundation, having served twice as chair, and continues to serve as treasurer. She has been a delegate to the American Bar Association House of Delegates since 2008, is on the board of the National Conference of Bar Foundations, and is an American Bar Foundation life fellow.

 

Sharp received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas and a J.D. from Baylor Law School.

In Memoriam: Chief Justice Jack Pope

CHIEF JUSTICE JACK POPE, 1913-2017

 

View an online video tribute

Retired Texas Chief Justice Jack Pope, who helped establish formal judicial education for Texas judges, fought for a voluntary judicial-ethics code when judges had none and fought again to make that code mandatory and enforceable, died Saturday at 103. He served Texas for 38 years as a district court judge, court of appeals justice and on the Supreme Court, the last two as chief justice.

 

His judicial tenure, as a whole, was the longest of any Texas Supreme Court justice.

 

“Chief Justice Jack Pope was a judicial icon,” Chief Justice Nathan L. Hecht said. “His hard work, scholarship, common sense, humor, and integrity are legendary. No Texas judge has ever been more committed to serving the rule of law and the cause of justice. He was my mentor, role model, counselor, and most especially, my friend. Texas has lost a great, great man.”

 

As a court of appeals justice, Pope’s reassessment of water rights conveyed by Spanish and Mexican land grants changed Texas water law forever. As chief justice he forged a way to guarantee income to finance legal assistance for the poor. Concerned with double litigation in the same case, he won legislative support for statutory changes to thwart “forum shopping” for favorable judges.

 

“I’m a common-law lawyer,” he proudly would proclaim, his right hand jabbing at the air, his voice emphatic in the way Jack Pope’s could get emphatic when his passions ran high about the law and judging. “And I was a common-law judge.”

 

The common law is the wisdom tested by the ages, he believed, but for him it was more than that. “This is history and it’s why the poor man, or the black man, is treated the same as all others,” he said.

 

By the time he retired in 1985, he wrote 1,032 opinions – a record then in Texas, by his reckoning. Two of them are considered among the most-important opinions in the state’s history.

 

“Common-law opinions,” he once said, proudly.

 

With his chiseled features and shock of white hair, Hollywood could not have cast a better judge.

 

Two sons survive him, Andrew Jackson Pope III and Walter Allen Pope, and three grandchildren.

 

His wife of 66 years, Allene Nichols Pope, died in 2004. On the back of her headstone at the Texas State Cemetery he had inscribed: “Allene is the difference between deeds and wishes, finishing and quitting, success and failure.”

 

“He devoted his life not only to the efficient administration of justice, but also to ensuring that justice is available to all,” former Chief Justice Wallace B. Jefferson said. “Jack Pope will be remembered as second to none in the annals of Texas law.”

 

One of his law clerks, former state Rep. Dan Branch of Highland Park, used the analogy of the old Olympics figure-skating scoring method to congeal the Pope legend. “Whether judging him as a man or a jurist or legal scholar or writer,” Branch said, “whatever aspect of his life, I’d hold up a 10.”

 

“Judge Pope was such a legend in the law, such a respected jurist,” said another law clerk, Gwendolyn M. Bookman, a political science professor at Bennett College in North Carolina, who believes she was the first African-American woman to clerk for the Court. “Certainly working for and with him was the greatest honor of my career.”

 

The sweep of his reforms and his opinions changed Texas law forever, said Austin attorney Steve McConnico, also a former law clerk. “What he did for trial practitioners, there’s no way to measure it. …

 

“He really studied the law. If Roscoe Pound wrote something, he read it. If Cardozo wrote something, he read it.”

 

Senior U.S. Circuit Judge Thomas Reavley, a former Texas Supreme Court justice, did not hesitate to name the best jurist among hundreds with whom he served in a judicial career extending six decades, including judges on all but one of the 11 federal regional circuits.

 

“Jack Pope,” he said.

 

Andrew Jackson Pope Jr. was born to Dr. A.J. and Ruth Pope in Abilene in 1913, the year Henry Ford revolutionized automobile manufacturing with the assembly line and the year road-builders completed the first coast-to-coast paved highway.

 

Pope graduated in 1934 from what was then Abilene Christian College. In a sense, he never left his hometown, serving for years as a trustee on the Abilene Christian University board. Most of his library and papers were donated to the university.

 

He earned his law degree from the University of Texas in 1938 and began law practice in Corpus Christi under an uncle’s tutelage. The library table that was his first desk in his uncle’s office sat as the centerpiece of his Austin study.

 

On one corner rested the standup Royal typewriter Pope used as a judge to collect and express his thoughts, then, in his retirement, his memoirs, a family history and a tribute he published to honor a coterie of dedicated care-givers he depended on in his later years.

 

Following a stint in the Navy in World War II, Pope took his first bench in Corpus Christi in 1946, on the 94th District Court, and served for four years.

 

In 1951 he left for the San Antonio Court of Appeals, having beaten three contenders without a runoff in the all-important Democratic primary, becoming, he said, the first justice on the court from south of San Antonio. He served on that court for 14 years until his election to the Supreme Court of Texas in 1964.

 

A lifelong Democrat, he won his seat on the Court also in a three-way primary without a runoff when Texas was essentially a one-party state. He never had opposition for re-election to the court of appeals or Supreme Court.

 

But his appointment as chief justice to succeed Joe Greenhill might have been his greatest political triumph. By his recollection, Gov. Bill Clements, the first Republican governor since Reconstruction and a lame duck defeated in late 1982, could not find a chief justice who would survive the blackballing by which senators could kill an objectionable appointment from their home districts.

 

Greenhill urged Clements to appoint Pope. But 14 Democratic senators pledged to block any appointment Clements made, essentially dooming it in the Senate. They argued that such an important appointment should be saved for incoming Gov. Mark White, the Democrat who beat Clements.

 

White gave unqualified support to Pope.

 

So Clements picked Pope, who had voted for White. Despite the opposition, Pope took the oath, then demanded that he get the prerogative of giving the State of the Judiciary speech.

 

In it Pope argued for reforms he had championed for years. He urged nonpartisan judicial elections and, to promote equal access to justice for the poor, approval of the so-called IOLTA program to pay for civil legal help for the poor with interest on lawyers’ common client-trust accounts. He argued for overhaul of what he considered Texas’ wasteful venue statutes that almost guaranteed two trials – one on the venue question and one on the merits.

 

In a chapter for his memoirs he described resisting offers for a deal to win the Senate’s approval. Pope had no plans to run for the chief justice position because he would turn 75, the mandatory retirement age for Texas judges, in the middle of another term. But he said senators wanted him to promise to resign after the Senate approved him to allow White’s appointee as chief justice to run as an incumbent in the next election.

 

Pope said no. Such a deal would be unethical, even illegal, he said. “If the public sees that I will make a deal to get a job and to keep a job,” he later wrote, “then maybe they’ll think I’ll make deals on other matters.”

 

Branch chuckled at the thought. “How could you complain about Jack Pope? It was brilliance by Clements. He picked someone who was unassailable.”

 

Pope’s force for judicial education began as soon as he donned his robe in Nueces County. As a new judge he set a goal.

 

“At that point,” he recalled, “I decided I was going to read legal literature, one chapter every night, seven nights a week, for 12 to 15 years.”

 

Years later, many of those books and more lined the shelves of his home library in Austin. Talking about his life, Jack Pope pulled a book from a section of library, a copy of Minimum Standards of Judicial Administration.

 

“This is my Bible,” he said.

 

It could have been instead one of four volumes of Jurisprudence by the great legal scholar Roscoe Pound or a copy of the Magna Carta story or one of three volumes of Law and Society. Or any of the others among hundreds of books packed floor to ceiling with biographies and treatises in a garage-sized library at his home in the hills above Tom Miller Dam.

 

“These,” he said of the books lining his walls, “are my friends.”

 

When he was on the appeals court, he wrote New York University Law School to ask whether it offered judicial education for intermediate-appellate judges. NYU had the only judicial-education program in the country, but limited it to state supreme court jurists.

 

Finding nothing, he worked for years for judicial education, assisted in founding the Texas Center for the Judiciary, a judicial-education institute, and signed the order mandating education for Texas judges.

 

But judicial education was only one of several judicial-administrative reforms he envisioned. In 1962, when he was on the appeals court, a State Bar committee he chaired drafted the first voluntary judicial-ethics code. In 1972, when he was on the Supreme Court, he drafted the first mandatory judicial conduct code for Texas judges.

 

Perhaps his greatest contribution to Texas law, however, was State v. Valmont Plantations, decided in 1961 while he was on the San Antonio Court of Appeals. In Valmont, Pope reevaluated a landmark water-rights case from three and a half decades before, found it laden with dicta and without analysis of Mexican and Spanish land grants even though those land grants should have been critical to the decision.

 

So Pope cast aside the notion that he was abandoning settled law, methodically demonstrating its fallacies. His Valmont decision was a proud legacy because the Texas Supreme Court adopted his opinion as its own, a rare move.

 

Valmont reassessed water rights conveyed by Spanish and Mexican land grants. It held, in a case by landowners along the Rio Grande suing for irrigation water from the new Falcon Reservoir on the Texas-Mexico border, that irrigation-water rights in the Lower Rio Grande Valley were not included in Mexican and Spanish land grants unless expressly mentioned in the grants.

 

When historical novelist James Michener researched water and its bearing on Texas history for his novel Texas, Branch recalled, Michener called on Pope to explain it.

 

“His researchers had figured out that he was water law,” Branch said.

 

In 1986, University of Texas law Professor Hans Baade honored Chief Justice Pope after his retirement with a law-review article titled, “The Historical Background of Texas Water Law – A Tribute to Jack Pope.”

 

Abilene Christian, Pepperdine, Oklahoma Christian and St. Mary’s universities awarded him honorary degrees.

 

In 2009 the Texas Center for Ethics and Professionalism presented its first Jack Pope Professionalism Award to Pope. In 2010 the State Bar’s Judicial Section honored him with a lifetime achievement award.

 

“Just about the time I was getting the hang of being a judge,” he said once, “I had to retire.”

 

In a quarter-century of retirement he kept active, studying and writing about the law and his family history, preparing books and papers for donation.

 

His was a familiar figure as he walked through his West Austin neighborhood.

 

At 96, determined to walk 9.6 miles for his birthday, an Austin television station featured him preparing by stretching lengthwise across his legs to touch his toes. High school athletes would have been envious.

 

McConnico perhaps put it best.

 

“He was a man for all seasons.”

President's Message: Love Your Lawyer Day

Posted By Bobby Barrera, SABA President, Friday, November 4, 2016

I must assume that I am not the only lawyer who didn't know that by proclamation of the ABA Law Practice Division Council (I didn’t know that there was one of those either!), the first Friday of every November has been decreed to be “Love Your Lawyer Day.” Surprisingly, this tradition is now 15 years old and has been the subject of both annual celebration and criticism. The alleged purpose is to thank lawyers for all they have done for the public, not only on an individual level, but also for the contributions lawyers have made in the shaping of American civilization and the protection of our God-given rights. There may be a lawyer reading this who has already asked internally, “Can Bobby say ‘God’ gave us these rights? Who will be offended by this statement?” Therein lies the inherent conflict in the redemption of the reputation of our profession and its purpose. As a general rule, we exist to resolve conflicts of opinion and the interpretation of our interaction not only with each other, but with everything earthly and heavenly as well. This is no easy task as evidenced by the decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States being split 5-4 on so many of the opinions which control our lives and dictate our human interaction. These men and women, arguably the most ably qualified legal minds in the country, rarely interpret the written law and the evidence to the same conclusion. It is axiomatic that for every winner, there is a loser. Accordingly, someone is always despising their lawyer or the opposing party’s lawyer. Or, they are all (including the lawyers) loathing the judge who most generally is also a lawyer! So to what end is the purpose of “Love Your Lawyer Day” other than to sell coffee mugs and marketing gimmicks?

 

Many years ago I was fortunate enough to hear then-Congressman Charlie Gonzales give a speech about the privilege of being a lawyer. It is truly one of the best and most professionally moving speeches that I have ever heard. The message was more artfully conveyed by him in 45 minutes than I can do now in one sentence, but, put simply, it was that we, as lawyers, are blessed not only with the opportunity, but, more importantly, with the responsibility to champion the rights and freedoms of all persons in this country. We have the right and the duty to stand up to the most powerful government in the world and tell it that it is wrong. We, as lawyers, told the Supreme Court that “separate but equal” should not be the law as it demeaned human dignity and they listened. We, as lawyers, have the responsibility to protect the weak and underprivileged from those who would do them wrong for financial gain, just ask Johns Manville and the asbestos companies. We, as lawyers, have the responsibility to protect the falsely accused from politically, racially or vindictively motivated prosecution — just ask Michael Morton, the “San Antonio Four” or Alan Brown. We, as lawyers, have the ability to change the laws that others with self-interests in mind would cause us to endure. 

 

In short, we have the responsibility to protect the American way of life with the application of the law and our creative, reasoning legal minds. However, we accept the premise that with this responsibility comes consequences for both the successes of our efforts as well as our failures. I know that I have walked back to my office from the courthouse on numerous occasions questioning internally the true meaning of the word “justice” in the application of my responsibilities to my criminally-charged client versus my responsibility to the community in which my family and I live. When successful, my client may “love” me, but those who he may have offended certainly revile me and what I do for a living. The same holds true for those lawyers who seek to prevent Christian prayers in our schools, who seek to force the use of gender-specific bathrooms by everyone, who seek to protect the rights of those who kneel during the National Anthem, who seek to protect billion-dollar corporations from responsibility for the defective products which they sell...the list goes on and on. Again, the understandable contradiction between the responsibilities of our profession and our public reputation remains unaltered by the outcome of the legal situations which we orchestrate to benefit our clients. Without regard to the virtue or sanctity of the goal we ultimately seek to obtain in litigation, in the eyes of the general public, the fact that we fight the fight is enough to impugn our reputation and their perception of us. More so, the morality of what we do and our utility to the public is continuously derided in humor, which rarely rises to the level of even a “courtesy chuckle.”

 

So it is with good reason that neither I nor most of you have never heard of “Love Your Lawyer Day” because we, as lawyers, didn’t assume the responsibilities and the duties that we have so that we could be lauded and praised as Hollywood celebrities are by the general public. No, we do what we do to protect the American Dream and our way of life without regard to the consequences to our reputation or our conflicting introspection. We are the “special forces” of the civilian legal world and the United States Constitution is our arsenal. These United States of America have the greatest legal system in the world, and we, as lawyers, are privileged and duty bound to protect it. Godspeed.

National Love Your Lawyer Day History

Posted By Administration, Thursday, October 20, 2016
Updated: Friday, November 4, 2016

Mark your calendars, lawyers across the nation will be celebrating Love Your Lawyer Day this November 4, 2016. 

 

According to the American Bar Association, "lawyers have consistently been the target of verbal bashing, derogatory portrayals in popular culture and literature rife with lawyer bashing" for hundreds of years. Love Your Lawyer Day was created by the ABA to reverse negative stigma surrounding the legal community. Section 1 of the resolution asks that the public say, Thank you, and honor all the good lawyers contribute to our communities. Ways to celebrate may include: sending a card, flowers or gifts, taking them out to lunch, making a donation to a charity in their name and, last but not least, sending them a testimonial of their work. Lawyers may not be asking for recognition but who wouldn't love thoughtful appreciation? 

 

Another initiative of Love Your Lawyer Day encourages attorneys to perform one hour of pro bono work or donate the equivalent of one billable hour to their favorite charity. SABA's Community Justice Program is designed for lawyers to give back to their community by offering to take on pro bono cases. To date, CJP has matched more than 8,500 pro bono cases to volunteer attorneys! Whether you're a member of the legal community or the general public, you can make sure charities win big.

 

Be sure to show your enthusiasm and appreciation for the legal community on your social media accounts and use #LoveYourLawyerDay.
