April 3, 2019: Order Denying Phil Ross’ request to have Oscar Kazen recuse, in addition to being Order denying Tonya Barina’s request for Sanctions against Phil Ross.
If Shavano Park Mayor Bob Werner — married to Shavano Park former resident Charlie Thrash’s guardian, Mary Werner, courtesy of their literally around-the-corner Shavano Park neighbor, Oscar Kazen — isn’t an incestuous circle in a small bedroom community of less than approximately 3,000 potentially less-than-consenting adults, we don’t know what it is.
Teeny Shavano Park, Texas has not one, but two judges had jurisdiction over another resident – Charlie Thrash – in their less than 4 sq mi community, and somehow, out of all the possible judges to hear a Motion to Recuse Shavano Park resident Oscar Kazen, residing at 106 Fawn Lane 78231, another Shavano Park resident Sidney Harle, residing at 423 Cliffside, 78231 is chosen by Texas’ Chief Statutory Probate Judge, Guy Herman, to make this important, impartial, no-influence-being-exerted judicial determination.
Given this set of circumstances, it is obvious the Chief Statutory Probate Judge for all of Texas – Guy Herman, who lives & adjudicates his probate decisions 70 miles up Interstate 35 in the state’s capital, Austin – would choose a judge who lives 3 blocks away from the judge about whom he’s being asked to consider the recusal motion, because nothing says “impartial” like choosing two judges who live 3 blocks away from each other, right? It’s not like the two judges are literally next door neighbors, just 3 blocks apart.
And it’s not like Judge Harle, hand-picked by Texas’ Chief Statutory Probate Judge Guy Herman, doesn’t live in between the judge he’s being asked to consider for recusal (Oscar Kazen) and the Mayor’s wife (Mary Werner), who’s the legal guardian of yet another Shavano Park resident (Charlie Thrash) – but Charlie is a resident who lives on the ‘other side of town’ from the three controlling residents, deciding his fate.
Please don’t forget that the entire reason Shavano Park resident and judge, Sidney Harle, was asked by Guy Herman to step into this decision about the ethics and legalities of Judge Harle’s around-the-corner neighbors, because attorney Phil Ross, attempting to represent Charlie Thrash, as is Charlie’s fundamental legal right – to have representation in a court of law – pointed out the fact that Bob & Mary Werner were political and financial backers of Oscar Kazen when he ran for election in 2018.
If the obvious ethically-challenged, if not judicially and legally questionable meetings that occurred between judge Oscar Kazen, and his (soon-to-be) chosen pick-to-be guardian, Mary Werner, of fellow (now former) Shavano Park resident Charlie Thrash, and the Mayor of the small community of Shavano Park (3,926 population – 2018), Mayor Bob Werner — married to Shavano Park former resident Charlie Thrash’s guardian, Mary Werner, courtesy of their around-the-corner neighbor, Oscar Kazen — isn’t an incestuous circle in a small bedroom community of less than approximately 3,000 potentially less-than-consenting adults, we don’t know what it is.
What are the odds? Evidently, excellent, if you’re in probate court, in Texas.
