Rendering Judgment Made by a Visiting Judge
In W.C. Banks, Inc. v. Team, Inc., 783 S.W.2d 783, 785-86 (Tex. App.--Houston [1st Dist.] 1990, no writ) a visiting judge conducted a bench trial. Id. at 784.
The visiting judge made a docket entry indicating a judgment for the plaintiff, but neither made findings of fact or formally rendered judgment for the plaintiff. Id. at 784.
The regular judge later rendered judgment for the plaintiff without hearing any of the evidence.
We reversed, holding that Texas Rule of Civil Procedure 330(g) does not authorize a district judge who heard none of the case to render judgment in a bench trial. W.C. Banks, 783 S.W.2d at 785-86.
