A State Bar of Texas public reprimand of former county court Judge Christopher Dupuy was upheld by an appeals board, according to a state bar publication of disciplinary action released this month.
The bar publicly reprimanded Dupuy in June 2012 and was ordered to pay $2,500 in attorney’s fees and $2,000 in direct expenses for neglecting a “legal matter entrusted to him” and failing to clearly explain the matter to a client, according to the disciplinary action.
Dupuy appealed, but the judgment was affirmed by the state bar’s board of disciplinary appeals last July.
Dupuy, who resigned from the bench of County Court at Law No. 3 in September after pleading guilty to misdemeanor charges of perjury and abuse of official capacity, remains licensed to practice law in Texas, according to the state bar.
