In a one-paragraph order issued today, the special court of review in In Re: Honorable Sharon Keller denied the motion for rehearing filed by the State Commission on Judicial Conduct’s examiner Oct. 26. On Oct. 11, the three-justice court of review appointed by the Texas Supreme Court in Keller’s case vacated the judicial conduct commission’s public warning of Keller and dismissed the commission’s charges against her. The commission had publicly warned Keller in connection with her conduct in the case of convicted killer Michael Richard, whom the state executed on Sept. 25, 2007. Seana Willing, the commission’s executive director and examiner, declines comment on the court of review’s order. John J. “Mike” McKetta, a shareholder in Austin’s Graves Dougherty Hearon & Moody, the commission’s special counsel in Keller, says of the order, “It reflects the last step that’s available with the special court.” McKetta declines further comment. Charles “Chip” Babcock, Keller’s attorney and a Jackson Walker partner in Dallas and Houston, did not immediately return a telephone call seeking comment.
