Although the Texas Supreme Court isn’t expected to issue its next full orders list until December 2nd, the 120-day clock is running for a decision in Allcat Claims Service, L.P. v. Susan Combs, No. 11-0589 — the constitutional challenge to the Texas business-margins tax.

The case was brought as an original proceeding in the Texas Supreme Court, and the 120-day clock was specified by the statute invoked by the taxpayers. The deadline appears to be the Monday after Thanksgiving.
