The Texas Supreme Court issued a quiet orders list this morning, with no opinions and no new cases chosen for argument.
Meanwhile, the Supreme Court Advisory Committee is tackling the controversial question whether to provide court-approved forms for litigants who represent themselves in divorce cases. Angela Morris of Texas Lawyer has been live-tweeting the meeting. It’s the rare rules issue that draws in the general public:
Earlier today, #SCAC chair Chip Babcock says it’s first meeting with attendance by lobbyist, & TV cameraman. “We have hit the big time.”
