John Paschall is shopping for a new judge

This afternoon I learned that the Calvert Historical Foundation dismissed its lawsuit against former Robertson County District Attorney John C. Paschall, walking away from more than $86,000.00 in cash sitting in the registry of the court. I also learned that Paschall is trying to get the case transferred to another court.

Until July, you may recall, I represented the foundation in the lawsuit that accused Paschall of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from the estate of Marium Oscar. I represented the foundation at no charge, but the foundation fired me after a sudden influx of new members ousted the president of the organization.  Then Paschall’s lawyers tried to frame me for barratry (for the second time), only to have  it blow up in their faces (again).

Rusty.249111858_stdYou have to give those crooks credit for one thing: they never give up. Prior to my termination, I had repeatedly heard rumors that Paschall and his attorney, Bryan F. “Rusty” Russ, Jr., were trying to get their cronies to join the foundation as members, then sabotage the lawsuit. And now that the FBI, the Texas Rangers, and the State Bar of Texas are investigating, they are trying really hard to shut down the civil case against Paschall.

Apparently Rusty has asked Senior District Judge H.D. Black, Jr., the visiting judge who is presiding over the Marium Oscar probate proceeding, to transfer the case back to county court. This is a nefarious request. Like all probate cases, the Marium Oscar case originally was filed in county court. The county judge at the time grew very suspicious of Paschall, however, because time and again Paschall failed to file the statutorily-mandated inventory of the estate’s assets. Eventually, the county judge removed Paschall as executor.

Paschall’s drinking buddy and attorney at the time, T. Wayne Brimhall (who is also the husband of County Clerk Kathryn Brimhall), immediately asked the county judge to transfer the case to district court, supposedly because the estate owned some bond certificates that needed to be interpreted by the district court. The request was a ruse, because to this day Paschall has never asked the district court to interpret any bond certificates.  … Read more

The end of one campaign, the beginning of another?

John C. Paschall

I had planned to write more about Robertson County DA John Paschall before today’s election, but a couple of my friends made a really good observation: if people still supported Paschall after what already had been revealed on this website and, then nothing else could change their minds.

Most of the old Booger County Democratic political machine will remain in place, regardless of who becomes DA, although it will be weakened tremendously if Paschall is defeated. Without a compromised and incompetent alcoholic as DA, it will be a lot harder to cover up the crime and corruption in the courthouse.

Either way, District Judge Robert M. Stem will face an election in 2014 (unless he resigns or retires). Judge Stem has long been the string puppet for Palmos, Russ, McCullough, & Russ, PLLC, and for at least two generations, that law firm has been at the center of most of the dirty politics and corruption in Robertson County. [more…]

In 2009, I filed a motion outlining the improper relationship between Judge Stem and the law firm, as well as other evidence of Judge Stem’s misconduct, and you can read that by clicking here (As you can see in those documents, I also represented Judge Stem’s own mother against him). Thus far, the State Commission on Judicial Conduct has protected Judge Stem, as have his fellow judges. But they can’t protect him from the voters.

So, should I keep running and use it for Judge Stem and the rest of the Booger County machine, or should I pick another website? Suggestions are welcome.
