Texas has had a reputation for arbitrary “frontier justice”; in one notorious example highlighted by renowned Stanford legal historian Lawrence M. Friedman, its appellate courts sustained a conviction of “guily” (where the t was omitted) in 1879 but reversed a conviction of “guity” (where the l was omitted) in 1886. The latter decision actually attempted to distinguish the earlier one by trying to explain why the letter l was more important than the letter t. The poor quality of Texas justice has been blamed on the state’s shortage of proper law schools and law libraries, as well as the traditional preference of Texans for “‘self-help’ justice as practiced in the courts of ‘Judge Winchester’ or ‘Judge Lynch.’” More recently, it has been pointed out that in Texas, victims of intrafamilial violence are sometimes required to cover the legal expenses of their family members who are being prosecuted for beating them up.
