East Texas Justice Sworn In

An East Texas judge is formally sworn in today in Longview. Justice Brian Hoyle took the oath to serve as a justice in the 12th Court of Appeals, which covers 17 counties throughout East Texas. Governor Rick Perry appointed Hoyle to the court last month. Hoyle says he's excited to serve East Texas.

"Just a great day. A wonderful time to spend with family and friends. A humbling experience, a great day to start service on the court," he says.

Justice Hoyle received the appointment after Justice DeVasto in Tyler went into private practice.
