The CCH landscape is changing at a fairly rapid rate these days. The retirement of David Wagner
(Abilene), Carolyn Moore (Lubbock) and Cheryl Dean (Ft. Worth) ushers in a whole new crop of
judges. In Houston there are three new faces, Robin Burgess, Early Moye, and Francisca Okonkwo.
In Dallas/Fort Worth, DWC hired Amanda Barlow. Out West, Travis Dupree (Midland) and Teresa
Boone (Lubbock)joined the Hearings team. Finally, two traveling Hearing Officers, Mayson
Pearson and Dee Marlo Chico, will be filling in where needed. These changes should keep us on
our toes for several months to come.
