Kelly Hart Partner David S. Morales Confirmed as United States District Judge for the Southern District of Texas

The United States Senate confirmed David S. Morales to a seat on the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas.

David Morales was confirmed Wednesday to fill the vacancy on the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas that was left open when U.S. District Judge Janis Graham Jack took senior status in 2011.  President Donald Trump nominated Morales to fill the seat in April 2018.  After yesterday’s Senate vote, Senator Ted Cruz stated, “I am delighted my Senate colleagues have confirmed David Morales to the federal bench.  His wealth of experience, coupled with his dedication to the rule of law and principled professionalism, will serve Texans in Corpus Christi and the Southern District well.”  We wish Judge Morales all the best in his new role.
