he refused to permit testimony of 2 witnesses who saw a propane bottle sitting in the son discharge propane gas. He refused to disqualify employees of a health and accident claims processor in the County, who is the largest employer. He rehabilitated them and repeatedly asked them: "Now, you can be fair can't you?I do not think he ruled for me once during a four-day trial. To say that he is conservative is putting it very kindly.
Congratulations Judge Palmer, there is not a more deserving person in the state of Texas than you are to be appointed to be the Judge of the 451st District Court. It has been my honor to know Judge Palmer as first an excellent and professional lawyer, was extremely pleased when he was appointed to be the first judge of the new County Court-at-Law of Kendall County. I was in his Court many times during the time he was Judge and he always conducted himself with honor, professionalism and distinction. I am sure he will bring the same excellent service as the Judge of Kendall County's first District Court This is my 43rd year of practicing law, first in Austin, Texas, then San Antonio and for the past 30 years in Boerne, Texas. In that time I have practiced before some of the great Judges in Texas, the Honorable Mace Thurman of Austin, who swore me in as an attorney, Tom Blackwell of Austin and most notably, Judge Jack Onion of San Antonio. I hold Judge Palmer in the same category as those fine gentlemen and Judges. Warren P. McKenney, Attorney
