Scholarly Lectures and Writings:

  • The Supreme Court of Texas has a history of controversy that has plagued its rulings with an appearance of bias. Some believe the court has taken it upon itself to effect tort reform through rulings favoring business defendants.  If true, the repercussions of this bias not only could unfairly disadvantage plaintiffs, but could also undermine the Texas jury system by rendering jury verdicts irrelevant. This Comment will focus on whether or not the Texas Supreme Court has overstepped its authority by using "no evidence rulings" to overturn jury verdicts and, if so, possible motivations for those findings. Part II of this Comment will discuss statistics of the Texas Supreme Court's rulings, Texas juries, the funding of Texas's partisan elections, and the new standard of review created by the court. Part III of this Comment will review jury verdicts the court has overturned through no evidence rulings by dismissing expert testimony and vague interpretations of precedent. In addition, Part III will promote a merit-based system of judicial selection., Author, The Undermining of the Texas Jury System From Above, South Texas Law Review 53 S. Tex. L. Rev. 631, 2012
