Disqualification of grievance panelists denied.

In re Sames (Published Memo):  An attorney’s effort to get two attorney-members of the District 2B Grievance Committee disqualified was denied a hearing by the trial court. On mandamus, the Tyler court rules that the trial court had discretion to deny the hearing.  There was no point in the trial court hearing a motion that was doomed to failure.  The attorney had filed a disqualification motion based on Tex. R. Civ. P. 18a, which deals with judges, instead of Texas Disciplinary Rule 2.06, which deals with the disqualification of grievance panelists.
