AUSTIN, TX -- Governor Greg Abbott today swore-in Supreme Court of Texas Justice Rebeca Huddle during her investiture ceremony at the State Capitol. Huddle will replace Justice Paul Green on the bench, who retired in August of 2020.
'Rebeca's strong work ethic and keen legal mind will be an asset to the Supreme Court of Texas, and I am confident that she will uphold the Constitution and work to ensure a fair and impartial justice system for all Texans,' said Governor Abbott. 'A first-generation American with an accomplished career in private practice and public service, Rebeca embodies the spirit of Texas and inspires all of us to work hard and achieve our dreams. I am proud to swear-in Rebeca to the Supreme Court of Texas and look forward to seeing all that she will accomplish in this new chapter.'
