Judge Joseph Licata III of Houston; Dumbo, serial scofflaw


The Supreme Court of Texas presented Joseph Licata III with a law license in 1978 after he graduated from South Texas University Law School.


The State Commission on Judicial Conduct found Joey guilty of the following misconduct.

  • Failed to comply with the law (scofflaw)
  • Failed to engage in conduct aimed at promoting integrity of judiciary
  • Failed to act impartially when dealing with defendants
  • Failed to maintain professional competence in the law (Dumbo)
  • Failed to follow Texas law while setting bonds for numerous defendants
  • Failed to strictly follow directives not to issue personal bonds to defendants per instructions of the judges in whose court the underlying cases were assigned
  • Engaged in willful violations of the Code of Conduct

As a direct consequence of his misconduct, the cheerleaders for Judicial Misfits sitting on the Texas Supreme Court punished Joey by gifting him with a complimentary admonishment.


As we speak (ca. March 2018), Joey continues to sit as a Criminal Law Hearing Judge in Houston, Texas.
