This shortened Memorial Day week could still be a big one at the Texas Supreme Court.
The Court was formally closed today, but the Justices have a private conference scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday. One item for discussion might be the State’s Friday filing seeking emergency relief in the FLDS case.
Several Justices are also scheduled to appear this Thursday and Friday at UT’s annual appellate CLE in Austin.
