Today’s order list did not contain any opinions, grants of review, or other unusual orders.

Next week is the last week before the Court returns from its summer recess. There should be plenty of work to be done when it returns — in addition to the normal burst of activity before the end of the fiscal year, the Texas Supreme Court has already granted enough arguments to fill two full oral argument sittings (of three days each) and part of a third sitting.

I would expect the Court to issue its Fall argument calendar in short order, and sometime in the next week I will post a few thoughts about the unusual challenges of preparing for argument in the Texas Supreme Court.
