Criminal court opening draws several hopefuls
News Story  February 12, 2010, by Jordan Smith
"...Travis County District Court Judge Charlie Baird's December decision – just days before the primary filing period began – that he would not seek re-election to the 299th Criminal District court came as a surprise to most courthouse watchers.

Point Austin: Heat and Light
Baird vs. Lehmberg off to a blazing start
News Column  October 28, 2011, by Michael King
