The Texarkana Gazette is reporting that Sixth District Judge Eric Clifford resigned from the bench Wednesday. The Sixth District serves Lamar and Red River counties. Clifford had been under fire since he received a 9 page reprimand from the Texas Commission on Judicial Conduct on a wide range of misconduct. Some of those instances allegedly involved disparaging remarks about lawyers and prosecutors. Clifford had withdrawn as a candidate for re-election back in December.
