South Texas College of Law graduate Eva Guzman, class of 1989, moves from the 14th Court of Appeals in Houston to the Supreme Court of Texas in Austin. Texas Governor Rick Perry appointed Guzman to the state's highest civil court to replace Scott Brister who's returning to private practice. Guzman practiced civil and family law in Houston for 10 years before becoming judge of the 309th State District Court and then, in 2001, was appointed to the Court of Appeals. The governor lauded Guzman's work ethic and principles as key factors in her being chosen for the high court. Guzman is the first Hispanic female to become a judge on the Supreme Court, and joins fellow South Texas graduate Justice David Medina on the court. She will face state-wide election in 2012.
