Controversy has swirled all week about State Bar of Texas President Larry McDougal’s online comments that have offended many lawyers. Now, the board of directors is stepping into the fray.

After fielding voluminous feedback on social media, the directors will hold a virtual board meeting to listen to the public, lawyers and fellow directors give their thoughts and opinions about what should happen to McDougal now. Some directors are now saying McDougal should resign, but others are supporting his remaining term in office.
