This week, the Court’s calendar shows an “other session” for Monday through Wednesday, which I have been informed is for the annual meeting of the American Law Institute. (( I believe all of the members of the Texas Supreme Court are members of ALI — I was able to find confirmation online for eight of the nine. )) The Court is also expected to issue a regular order list this Friday.

Why carve out a whole week for the ALI meeting? The ALI brings you the “Restatements of the Law” on which courts so heavily rely. (I had a professor who liked to call them Pre-Statements of the Law, which might in some situations be a more fitting name.)

Because the In re Citigroup argument was removed from the schedule when that case was abated, there are no arguments currently on the Court’s calendar before the fall.
