The Texas Supreme Court is returning from a summer break, and as it happens, so am I.

This most recent August 15th orders list was a quiet one, with no opinions issued and no grants.

The same was true the week before, the week before that, the week before that, and the week before that.

Looking forward, the Court’s public calendar shows two, two-day private conferences over the next two weeks, so it’s fair to expect some end-of-term orders to reduce the number of argued and pending cases that will be carried forward into the Court’s new accounting year on September 1.
