GALVESTON, Texas — A district court judge on Thursday postponed for at least a week a hearing on whether he should temporarily suspend Judge Christopher Dupuy in connection with a lawsuit seeking his removal from the bench.
Dupuy, however, remains under suspension by the State Commission on Judicial Conduct on a separate matter related to his indictments, which total nine felony and misdemeanor charges of obstruction or retaliation, abuse of official capacity and official oppression.
Dupuy was elected in a 2010 Republican landslide to Galveston County Court at Law No. 3. His reign has been marked by controversy and accusations, some of which led to criminal charges and the removal lawsuit filed by attorney Greg Hughes on behalf of the state attorney general’s office.
