Today’s orders list had no activity, other than two previously abated cases being granted for purposes of settlement.

The Court’s public calendar does not show any private conferences scheduled until mid-August.

Unlike the U.S. Supreme Court, the Texas Supreme Court does not freeze the issuance of orders or opinions during the heat of summer. Consistent with the last few Julys, we may continue to see a trickle of orders, and perhaps even opinions, as the Court moves toward the traditional burst of activity in August.
