Judge Robert Armstrong

Judge Robert Armstrong, here with his wife Ann, is retiring from the bench on Oct. 17.

The search for a new district judge for Dallas County has begun.

The judicial commission appointed in August has placed an advertisement in local media inviting qualified attorneys to apply for the seat that will become open in October when Robert Armstrong retires after almost 17 years on the bench.

The state constitution requires the judge to be a resident of Dallas County who has practiced law for at least three years. No judge is allowed to practice law or run for or hold any other public office while on the bench, according to the ad placed by the Dallas County Judicial Commission.
