Helping Trial Lawyers Navigate the Appellate System

Supreme Court Webcasting Era Begins

With this morning’s live webcast of arguments before the Texas Supreme Court, a new era in Texas appellate practice has begun.  I was able to access the webcast and view the arguments without any problem.  The video feed—which has a certain “Court TV” look—appears on the left side of the screen, flanked by a brief summary of the case being argued.  A schedule of upcoming arguments, along with links to electronic briefs and summaries for each, appears on the main webcast page.
