On March 11, 2019, President Trump nominated Brantley D. Starr to the District Court for the Northern District of Texas, for the seat previously held by Judge Sidney A. Fitzwater. Starr is currently the Deputy First Attorney General of Texas, a position he has held since 2015. He previously worked as a Fellow and Assistant Solicitor General to the Texas Office of the Attorney General (AG), and a law clerk to Justice Don Willett on the Texas Supreme Court.
Alliance for Justice has prepared this brief fact sheet to highlight areas of Starr’s record in which we believe greater scrutiny by the Senate is warranted. This snapshot report does not attempt to analyze the entirety of his record.
