City Can't Fire Disbarred Judge

Judge Tiffany Lewis, a former Dallas prosecutor and now a municipal judge, can't be fired by the powers that be in Dallas--even though she has been disbarred. Why? Because there is nothing in the city charter that allows city leaders to fire a municipal judge before her term is up under any circumstances. So, although she says she won't, she still has the authority to sign off on arrest warrants and search warrants. What a system.
