Would you like to meet Judge Trey Loftin, 43rd Judicial District Court, who just handed down a faulty judgement in favor of serial polluter Range Resources in the highly publicized Parker County water contamination case?
Darn! We just missed our chance. (What did I tell you? Judge Loftin’s decision in this case has everything to do with getting reelected and nothing to do with justice.)
The company this judge keeps explains it all.
“Judge Loftin is a new generation conservative who brings back common sense to the courtroom.” Rick Perry
Meet Stan and Melissa Mickle who hosted the campaign fundraiser for Judge Trey Loftin.
Search continues for insurance claim implicating suspects in tractor theft
An anonymous informant told authorities course owner Stan Mickle and his father Wes buried stolen equipment more than 10 years ago in an effort to throw law enforcement off the trail. Investigators executed a search warrant Feb. 27 and uncovered a 1984 Ford wheel loader underneath a pile of rocks and boulders stacked on the side of the 13th fairway.
Mike Renfro, formerly the grounds keeper at Canyon West, said he has personally heard Stan Mickle tell stories about stolen equipment that was buried during construction of the course. Renfro described stumbling upon a yellow piece of metal protruding from the fairway in 2006.
“I asked Stan about it, he told me to cover it. I covered it with soil. A few days later, Stan put large rocks on top of the area.”
I wonder if the Parker County Tea Party is aware that Judge Trey Loftin ruled in favor of corporate interest against the private property rights of a Parker County landowner. I bet they’re not.
Again, you decide. Is this video deceptive? Since when does a landowner get sued for taking a home video?
To learn what has happened to our judicial system I STRONGLY URGE you to watch
Thank you for the tip from reader, Robert Finne. I love my readers.

Oh, my. Burying tractors for insurance payouts and then fundraising for a Republican District Judge three years later? Sakes Alive! What won’t they do while claiming to be so goody too shoes while doing it?? Damn. ~ Flo
Flo B says
Flo loves Robert Finne, too. And yes, it’s “goody two-shoes.” Flo goofed. The judge seems to have very BAD judgment for a judge.
does he have an opponent? this would make a great case for his opponent to use against him.
sharon stood with the tea party against the keystone xl eminent domain abuse in paris, texas. will the tea party stand with us to protest this injustice?
Tim Ruggiero says
Even if the video is or was ‘deceptive’, this is how legitimate cases get sidetracked from the real issues. Loftin is also the same judge who decided that Range Resources could sue the Lypsky’s and Alisa Rich because she encouraged them to contact the EPA. So what if she did? The Railroad Commission has a long history of doing nothing, and finding nothing when they do get involved, and neither Rich or the Lypsky’s have any control over the EPA and their findings. Loftin is just simply too much personally involved politically and financially to want to have anything to do with this case. Loftin makes it seem like the EPA simply took Rich’s word for it and didn’t actually do any testing. This is far from over.
Judge Trey Loftin was nominated by failed presidential candidate Rick (The Oops!) Perry and confirmed by the GOP-controlled Texas Senate just over a year ago. Last I heard this crowd hates the EPA (when they can remember what it’s called). So, why would Judge Loftin do anything to change that opinion?
This will be his first election outside of being the president-elect of the Stuard Elementary Parent Teacher Organization.
This guy should not be a judge! How horribly distasteful. SHAME ON HIM!!!!
A campaign slogan for Judge Loftin:
Judge Trey Loftin, a judge for the 1% elected by the 99%.
WAKE UP PEOPLE!
This judge is just another example of why they call the crooked Texas courts the “Oil Soaked Texas Courts”!
I know Stan Mickle, so I am posting without my real name.
I started typing up what I know about this low life s.o.b. but decided discretion is warrented. He has lied left and right about the insurance scam. He has cheated on various wives multiple times and the one he’s married to now must be a recent acquisition.
He wraps himself in the born again Christian cloak now. Read this at your own risk – have something nearby to throw up in:
WOW! That is truly sickening!
Trey Loftin: RESIGN NOW!!!
I am about to vomit.
My statcounter tells me that the FBI Criminal Division is very interested in this case.
I tried to make a comment on the Parker County Blog. http://parkercountyblog.com/2012/02/15/meet-greet/ They won’t allow my comment. LOL

Letter to the Editor

Weatherford, TX 76086
In response to the April 5th article on Candidates Discuss issues.
Historically Parker County candidates have been honest and forthright competitors. Parker County is not used to big city smoke and mirror politics. But smoke and mirrors need clarification.
Trey Loftin says the governor appointed him to the position “based soley on my qualifications.” I know who the other attorneys were that applied for the position. Email and ask the governor for all of the applications. Then compare them for yourself. You may think a more appropriate answer is that Trey Loftin got the job because of who he knew not what he knows. SMOKE!
Loftin said, “When you think of the qualifications for the court, experience counts, this court this past year has handled the most serious or at least most of the most serious cases in the history of Parker County.” It may be true that Judge Loftin has attracted serious crime to Parker County, if so we need to vote him out. More likely than not his experience had nothing to do with serious crimes coming to court. SMOKE!
Judge Loftin said, “my court has also had tremendous success dealing with some of the most significant criminal cases in the history of the county. It did not happen on accident. It happens because of experience and it happens because of hard work.” He does not define success, but American Citizens have a constitutional right to a criminal trial. This does not happened because of his experience and hard work. It is the law of our land. SMOKE!
Judge Loftin wrote on the Parker County Blog: “Also, to be clear, when I became Judge, I had to take a large pay cut which I and my wife are happy to do”. But when asked to show his tax records to prove his great personal sacrifice, he refused. SMOKE!
Judge Loftin said he has had experience as a felony prosecutor in Tarrant County . When the Tarrant County Prosecutors office received an open records request concerning Judge Loftin’s record as a prosecutor, he wrote the Texas Attorney General asking that his records be kept from public scrutiny. SMOKE!
Don’t fall for political rhetoric or smoke and mirror politics. We have an important election next month in Parker County. I am asking you to consider voting early, vote often and vote against TREY LOFTIN.
Chuck Bayne says
After my recent Letter to the Editor in the Weatherfird, Democrat Judge Loftin assigned a special prosecutor from outside Parker County. This prosecutor will be paid for by the citizens of Parker County and will cost THOUSANDS OF TAX DOLLARS. Judge Loftin is having Chuck Bayne put up a FOUR THOUSAND DOLLAR BOND
After reading these posts I believe you may be able to help me.
I lost a case to Trey Lofton ( bully) in Tarrant county, my lawyer was terrible and seemed to be more intimidated by loft than defending me.
Now Trey Lofton Wants sanctions and contempt charges placed against me. I cant find a lawyer who is willing to take him on as my other attorney (useless) has quit my case!
Chuck Bayne says
After my recent Letter to the Editor in the Weatherford Democrat Newspaper, Judge Loftin assigned a special prosecutor from outside Parker County and placed me under a bond. This prosecutor will be paid for by the Citizens of Parker County and will probably cost THOUSANDS OF TAX DOLLARS. Judge Loftin has had me put up a FOUR THOUSAND DOLLAR BOND and I must appear before a special judge to answer why I used an email address Judge Loftin was not familiar with. Yes, Judge Loftin had demanded that I turn over to him all of my email accounts and the passwords. I believe Judge Loftin did this in hopes that it would intimidate me in such a manner that I would be afraid to speak out against him. Judge Loftin recused himself for some reason and the court has to find an impartial judge to hear the case. An out of County Judge will probably have to be paid with Parker County tax money. Judge Loftin wants to put me in jail for 6 months for speaking out on the internet by email. I had been attending political rally’s to hear the candidates speak. Yes, I even applauded when Judge Loftin spoke. This is Texas courtesy. The judicial order states I cannot go within 500 yards of Judge Loftin. This effectively stops me from going to speak against Judge Loftin. It appears that Judge Loftin is abusing his power in so many ways. I am turning it over to the FBI’s civil rights division. I do not think a judge can order you to stay away from a political rally or to cast your vote. Yes, I cannot vote early for fear that Judge Loftin may choose to vote early also and we might be within 500 yards of each other at the voting polls. I cannot even go to the clerk of courts office and see the actual and attachments that have been filed against me since his office is within 500 yards of there. Early voting starts today in Parker County. Vote early it is your GOD given American right. I served our country along with many, many, others to make sure you can exercise that right. Many men and women have died insuring you have the right to vote and speak your peace about public figures without repercussion. I ask you to vote early, vote often and vote against judge Loftin.

hmmmmm, seems like this judge has been payed off to dismiss these cases considering the evidence of damage to people’s water supply, not logical to dismiss, hence he is payed off
Do you mind if I quote a few of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your weblog? My blog is in the very same niche as yours and my users would truly benefit from a lot of the information you present here. Please let me know if this alright with you. Thank you! dedcabdaadde
