"Texans for Justice" and "Hecht, No!" Campaigns Release Video Advertisement Slamming Incumbent Justices

HOUSTON, Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Texans for Justice" and "Hecht, No!" voter information groups today released a hard-hitting video advertisement slamming Texas Supreme Court Chief Justice Nathan Hecht and two other incumbent justices running for re-election for overturning jury verdicts and fighting a $29,000 state ethics fine.

"Would you outlaw steak in Texas? Heck No. Wear a fur coat on an August afternoon? Heck No," begins the ad. "Would you vote for all-hat-and-no-cattle justices who turn public beaches into private playgrounds? Who overturn a vast majority of appealed jury verdicts? Who spend five years fighting ethics fines? On March 4, join Texans and say: Heck no!"

The advertisement can be found online at:

Together, these grassroots campaigns have garnered thousands of online followers and demonstrate the fact that Texans are tired of the "affluenza epidemic" of favoring irresponsible multinational corporations and insurance interests that has plagued the Texas court system.

During early voting that's underway for the March 4 Republican primary election, voters have the opportunity to elect new justices to the Texas Supreme Court by defeating incumbent Justices Nathan Hecht, Jeff Brown and Phil Johnson and electing Robert Talton, Joe Pool, Jr., and Justice Sharon McCally to the Texas Supreme Court.

The Republican primary election is March 4 and early voting takes place from Feb. 18 - 28. For more information, visit the campaign websites at and
