Broadus Spivey, a former State Bar of Texas president and a partner in Austin’s Spivey & Grigg, is another of the 20 attorneys who joined in filing the complaint. Spivey says in an interview that he was appalled when he read newspaper reports that Keller closed the court’s office before Richard’s attorneys could file the motion for a stay.
“It shows an amazing lack of sensitivity to constitutional rights,” Spivey says. “No matter how guilty a person is, give him a right to be heard.”
In their law practices, Herring and Spivey represent clients in cases involving lawyers’ professional responsibility.
Texas Moratorium Network (TMN) is a non-profit organization with the primary goal of mobilizing statewide support for a moratorium on executions in Texas. Significant death penalty reform in Texas, including a moratorium on executions, is a viable goal if the public is educated on the death penalty system and is encouraged to contact their elected representatives to urge passage of moratorium legislation.
