>CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) – Officials in South Texas have placed a municipal court judge on unpaid leave after it was discovered she’s not a U.S. citizen.

>Corpus Christi Mayor Pro-Tem Lucy Rubio told the Corpus Christi Caller-Times that Judge Young Min Burkett was placed on leave for 90 days with the intention that will be enough time for her to obtain citizenship.

>Rubio says the city never asked during the qualification process to become a municipal judge whether Burkett was a citizen, and says Burkett never tried to deceive or misrepresent her background.

>Rubio adds that city attorneys have reviewed the matter and determined that Burkett’s rulings from the bench remain valid and lawful.

>The Caller-Times reports that Burkett did not return phone calls seeking comment. Her nationality is not clear.
