A federal judge based in Plano, Tex. has issued a scheduling order in the case of Roe v. Patterson, a civil lawsuit that alleges former Southwestern Seminary President Leighton Paige Patterson abused his office and exercised gross negligence in dealing with a serial rapist whom he employed on campus.

The Trump-appointed district court judge, Sean Jordan, was confirmed by the U.S. Senate on July 31, 2019. He is a summa cum laude graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, and an honors graduate of the University of Texas School of Law.  He also served as an army infantryman and a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division.

Put another way, Jane Roe is fortunate to have a conservative jurist working the case who knows something about protecting innocent people and stopping evildoers.
