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.
“And I've been here ever since,” Moore said.
Watching predecessors Gregg and Ralph Caton in action got Moore interested in serving as a judge.
“I saw that this was something I'd like to try,” he said. “I've worked with a lot of good people over the years. We've got a great group of judges out here in West Texas, and I've enjoyed working with them.”
Asked what he would remember most from his term in office, Moore noted the 2001 renovation of the old county library, which was upgraded to house the district courtroom, as well as offices for the district judge, attorney and clerk.
“That's one of the highlights,” he said. “I certainly didn't do it single-handedly, but to have had a hand in that was a neat experience.”
