Orange County commissioners met yesterday and did not make a decision to name an
interim county judge to replace Judge Britt Carlton, who has announced his resignation.
Commissioners are expected to meet again next week to discuss the naming of an interim
judge to fill out Carlton’s unexpired term that ends at the end of the year. Carlton’s resignation
is effective April 22nd. Carlton, who lost his reelection bid in the March primary, has accepted
a job with the Texas Medical Board.
