The Texas Supreme Court begins its fall with a series of conferences that clear out the petitions from the summer. Traditionally, that means a flurry of briefing requests that will keep the law clerks busy over the winter and set up the Court’s spring argument calendar.

This week’s conferences led to more than 30 new requests for full briefing on the merits. Each of those petitions had at least three Justices interested enough to devote staff to study them more deeply.
