The Texas State Commission on Judicial Conduct has issued public warnings to a Fort Worth judge who tried to discuss slavery with an African-American attorney representing clients in a case before him and an Amarillo judge who “slapped” a female lawyer’s buttocks at a party.

In public warnings released Thursday, the commission ordered Tarrant County Court-at-Law No. 1 Judge Brent Keis and 47th District Judge Hal Miner of Amarillo each to complete an eight-hour course — Keis on racial sensitivity and Miner on gender sensitivity and sexual harassment — within 120 days of the orders, which are dated May 14.
