Justice Rebeca Aizpuru Huddle was appointed to the Supreme Court of Texas by Governor Greg Abbott in October 2020. A native of El Paso, Justice Huddle is the youngest of five siblings and knows the promise of America and Texas.
Justice Huddle lost her father early in life and learned the value of hard work and dedication from her immigrant mother, who devoted herself to providing for Rebeca and her four siblings.
In her early years, Justice Huddle came to understand the value of education as an avenue to a better life. After graduating from Stephen F. Austin Hugh School, Justice Huddle earned her undergraduate degree from Stanford University. After spending a year teaching Spanish in California after graduation, Justice Huddle knew it was time to come back home to Texas.
Justice Huddle earned her law degree at the University of Texas School of Law, where she was the recipient of three endowed presidential scholarships and graduated with honors.
Justice Huddle has long been engaged in the community, in bar activities, and mentoring younger lawyers. In 2019, she was named a Woman on the Move by Texas Executive Women. She has served as a member of the board of directors of the Greater Houston Partnership and the Houston Area Women’s Center. She is a Fellow of the Texas Bar Foundation and the Houston Bar Foundation. She enjoys mentoring younger lawyers, encouraging them to strive for excellence and become active leaders within their communities.
Justice Huddle and her husband Greg have two daughters, Isabel and Emma.
Justice Debra Lehrmann is the longest serving female Supreme Court Justice in Texas history and serves as the Senior Justice on the Court. With over 35 years of judicial experience, having served as a trial judge in Tarrant County for 23 years prior to her appellate service, she has a proven record of enforcing the rule of law across the board and never legislating from the bench.
She has been elected twice to the Court since her 2010 gubernatorial appointment; in 2022 she received more votes than any other candidate in the Texas primary. She consistently receives high approval ratings in Judicial Bar Polls, and in the 2022 Judicial Bar Poll she received more votes than any other judicial candidate. A member of Phi Beta Kappa, Justice Lehrmann graduated from The University of Texas with high honors in 1979 and from The University of Texas School of Law in 1982. She received her LL.M. degree from Duke Law’s Master of Judicial Studies in 2016.
In addition to being the court of last resort in all civil and juvenile cases, the Supreme Court is the overseer of the 3rd branch of government. Justice Lehrmann is honored to spend an enormous amount of time and energy on these administrative duties. She serves as the Court’s liaison to:
- The State Bar of Texas
- The Permanent Commission on Children, Youth and Families
- The State Bar of Texas Family Law Section
Justice Evan Young is a proven legal scholar and public servant. Evan’s extensive background in private practice and public service makes him extraordinarily well qualified to serve the people of Texas on their Supreme Court. Evan clerked for Justice Antonin Scalia at the U.S. Supreme Court and has dedicated his life to advancing the rule of law at home and abroad. He will faithfully defend the Constitution and laws for the people of Texas.
Evan stood out as a scholar early in his life as valedictorian of Tom C. Clark High School in San Antonio, one of 20 USA Today national Academic All-Stars, a British Marshall Scholar at Oxford University, and a Yale Law graduate. With gratitude for his opportunities, Evan has always been a teacher at heart—from his college days volunteering as a history teacher, followed by literacy tutoring in Austin, to many years of teaching courses on Religious Liberty and Federal Courts as an adjunct professor at the University of Texas School of Law.
Evan is a devoted husband and father. Church is central to him, his wife, and his daughter. In private practice, he used his free time volunteering to advocate for the religious freedoms that our Constitution promises. He is committed to a life of service and community learned from the example set by his grandfathers, father, and uncle—all veterans of the U.S. Air Force.
Evan’s wife, Tobi, who previously served as the General Counsel for former President George W. Bush and clerked for Justice Neil Gorsuch. Evan and Tobi live in Austin with their daughter Romilly.
