Mark Trachtenberg in Texas Lawbook, Texas Lawyer and Law360: 'Rebeca Huddle of Baker Botts Named to SCOTX'


Haynes and Boone, LLP Partner Mark Trachtenberg was quoted by The Texas Lawbook, Texas Lawyer and Law360 about Rebeca Aizpuru Huddle’s nomination to the Texas Supreme Court by Gov. Greg Abbott.

Here is an excerpt from The Texas Lawbook:

Gov. Greg Abbott has tapped the Houston-based, firmwide chair of commercial litigation at Baker Botts, Rebeca Aizpuru Huddle, as his nominee to replace Paul Green on the Supreme Court of Texas.

Huddle is a former justice on the First Court of Appeals. A native of El Paso, she is a graduate of Stanford University and the University of Texas School of Law. She is currently partner-in-charge of Baker Botts’ Houston office.

Mark Trachtenberg, an appellate partner at Haynes and Boone, was similarly enthused. Trachtenberg said he worked with her through the Houston Bar Association appellate section council.

“Justice Huddle is a phenomenal choice for the Texas Supreme Court. She was a brilliant justice on the First Court of Appeals and had a well-earned reputation for issuing scholarly and well-reasoned opinions. She will bring a sharp analytical mind and an impressive work ethic to the state’s high court. As great of a lawyer and judge she is, she’s an even better person, and she is universally liked by all who know her or have worked with her.”
