A three-judge panel has rejected Burnet County Judge James Oakley's appeal of a public admonition by the Texas Commission on Judicial Conduct.

“The Special Court of Review has considered the pleadings, the evidence, and the arguments of counsel and finds that the Honorable James Oakley willfully violated Canon 2B of the Code of Judicial Conduct … by lending the prestige of his office to further the private interests of another person. The appropriate sanction for this conduct is a Public Admonition,” wrote Justice Gregory T. Perkes of the Thirteenth Court of Appeals at Corpus Christi-Edinburg in the Oct. 25 opinion. . . .
