The Supreme Court of Texas issued four opinions with this week’s order list.
The Court also granted oral argument in nine cases, filling out its early March argument sitting.
As time allows, I will post more thoughts about some of these cases.
- Pine Oak Builders, Inc. v. Great American Lloyds Insurance Co., No. 06-0867. (DB) The Court affirmed in part and reversed in part. Justice Willett wrote for the Court.
Old Farms Owners Association, Inc. v. Houston Independent School District, Inc., No. 07-0924 (per curiam). (DB) Without hearing oral argument, the Court reversed the court of appeals and reinstated the trial court’s judgment.
Nine Cases Set for Argument, Filling the Early March Sitting
The Court also set nine cases for argument. Seven were petitions for review, one was a petition for mandamus, and one was an attorney disciplinary appeal.
