Helping Trial Lawyers Navigate the Appellate System

Legislative Watch 2009

Today marks the beginning of the 81st Texas Legislature.  A number of bills that would affect litigators and appellate practitioners are expected, many of which failed to pass during the last session.

I will be keeping an eye on noteworthy bills as they are introduced and will comment on them as my workload permits.  With the House relatively balanced among party lines and a change in Speaker, we could be in for an interesting time.
