District Judge prepares to step down

December 20, 2010

After almost 21 years on the bench, 118th District Judge Robert H. Moore III is calling it a career.
Sort of.
A retirement reception for Moore was held Friday in the district courtroom where he presided since being appointed to the bench by then-Texas Gov. William Clements on March 1, 1990.
Moore began his legal career after graduating from the University of Texas law school in 1969. He served as 118th District Attorney from 1973 until 1976, then returned to private practice until receiving the call from Gov. Clements to fill the unexpired term of then-District Judge Jim Gregg.
