That might sound familiar, or even vaguely predictable, for those monitoring the argument calendar:
Doing a little math… we might expect some grants to be announced on February 16th, to be argued on March 9th or March 10th.
The two cases granted with some orders issued earlier today (official version) are being scheduled for argument on March 9th and March 10th.
More details about these cases will appear after the docket is updated. Generally speaking, the J.B. Hunt case is about two Texas trial courts competing for jurisdiction. The Doctors Hospital case is about how liability for medical malpractice can, or cannot, percolate up through the limited-partnership structure owning a hospital.
