Governor Greg Abbott has appointed Rebeca Huddle (R) to the Texas Supreme Court, filling the vacancy left by retiring Justice Paul Green (R).
Unlike the Supreme Court of the United States, justices for the Texas Supreme Court are elected. However, Justice Green’s retirement, which comes two years before the end of his term, was announced too late for a special election to be called for the general election this November.
Huddle is a first-generation US citizen and former First District Court of Appeals justice. She was appointed to that position by former governor Rick Perry in 2011. After winning reelection in 2012, she served in that role through 2018.
