The San Antonio Express News has an editorial in Saturday’s paper saying “the misconduct charges against Texas Court of Criminal Appeals President Judge Sharon Keller are a welcome development.”

Regardless of the outcome, the State Commission on Judicial Conduct deserves kudos for having the courage to act in this situation. Public confidence in the system’s ability to police itself should be bolstered by the commission’s action.
