Gov. Rick Perry today issued the following statement regarding Justice O'Neill's decision to resign from the Supreme Court of Texas:
"Justice O'Neill has been a notable presence on the bench for over a decade, as both a strong judge and an advocate for the women and children of Texas.
"She stands as a fine example of the Texas tradition of service to her community, and through her years of hard work and dedication, has helped make the Lone Star State a better place to live.
"I commend her for her many years of service to the State of Texas, and wish her well in her future endeavors."
