It looks like there may only be one slot left for a case to be argued this term.

In its March 7, 2008 order list, the Supreme Court of Texas set two cases to be argued on April 22, 2008 in Lubbock (at Texas Tech). And that’s the last scheduled oral-argument date on the Court’s calendar as it is posted today.

When the Court sits in Austin, it usually hears three cases. But when the Court last heard arguments at a university campus (at Baylor University last December), it heard only two cases.

I haven’t had a chance to check with the clerk’s office to see if there is another oral-argument slot remaining for the Lubbock sitting (and I’m not sure they’d be at liberty to say).
