About Judge Kara Darnell

WHY JUDGE KARA DARNELL IS RUNNING

No other candidate comes close to having her judicial experience.
 

Judge Darnell is a ‘strict constructionist’ judge. She believes judges should interpret the law as opposed to making new law by legislating from the bench.  Judge Darnell believes judges should review the facts of each case, apply the law, and hold parties to their burdens to ensure cases adhere to the basic legal principles and standards enshrined in our U.S. and Texas Constitutions. Serving as Judge of the 99th District Court would allow Kara the opportunity to apply her experience, knowledge and judicial expertise to a Court that deals with a variety of issues that impact Texas families.
