An attorney that's been deemed a “vexatious litigant” in state court and federal court seems likely to win an election for judge

Austin Chronicle this week:

In January, barring some unexpected obstacle, Madeleine Connor will become judge in the 353rd state District Court. Following previous defeats as a Republican (twice) and a Democrat (once), Connor narrowly defeated incumbent Judge Tim Sulak in the March Democratic primary.

She has no Republican opponent in November.

Statesman from last Spring:

Sulak, in his 10th year on the bench, is well-regarded in courthouse circles. A survey of local attorneys last year showed him with the highest score for overall excellence among the county’s eight civil district judges.


“Having all of these experiences, I think I would make an excellent judge,” [Connor] said.
