Anyone know whether ACTIVE federal judges of NON-TEXAS courts can conduct the marriage ceremony? It seems like even if Ken Starr was still an active justice of the D.C. U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, he would still not be an authorized person to conduct the ceremony considering the way 2.202(a)(4) is written. The part concerning federal magistrates and judges specifically states "judge or magistrate of a federal court OF THIS STATE." This appears to designate the only federal judges or magistrates that qualify are those of the 4 U.S. district courts in Texas. Sounds like even a sitting U.S. Supreme Court Justice is not authorized to conduct a Texas marriage. Anyone have any information or clarification on this?
