The Karnes County Commissioners Court, at a March 21 special meeting, voted unanimously to appoint attorney Richard Butler as interim Karnes County judge. He was sworn in at the commissioners’ March 24 regular meeting.

Butler succeeds former County Judge Barbara Navjar Shaw, who resigned from office following her decisive defeat by Walter Long March 4 in the county’s Democratic primary election. Long will face Republican challenger Maurice Yarter in November and the winner will take office in January 2015.

Butler’s legal career began in Cuero, where he practiced with the firm of Dietze & Butler from 1977 to 1989. He joined Langley & Banack in 2012, and the firm since has practiced as Langley, Banack & Butler in its Karnes City offices. He will continue to practice law with the firm on an “of counsel” basis while serving as the interim county judge.
