The Court issued decisions in seven cases with today’s order list. One of them was an argued case; the other six were Rule 59.1 decisions issued off the Court’s submarine docket. (( If the term “submarine docket” is unfamiliar to you, there is some explanation in this previous post. ))

Today’s opinions are available on this page. I’ll post some summaries of these cases later today. [Update: Today was busier than expected. I’ll get the summaries up this weekend.]

The Texas Supreme Court also granted the petition for review in State of Texas v. Central Expressway Sign Associates, No. 08-0061 (DocketDB), out of the Dallas Court of Appeals. That case has been set for argument on January 13, 2009.
