Criminal defense in Austin Texas.

Glass Half Full

Grits is always interesting.  I thought this bit was especially  noteworthy:   According to the Office of Court Administration, the Court of Criminal Appeals is less than indiscriminate when it comes to overturning decisions of the lower courts.  Austin decisions came in for special attention 35.5% of the time.  By way of comparison, Dallas decisions merited special attention 3% of the time, Ft. Worth 3.3%, and the 14th court in Houston 2.5%.

In other news, the CCA wrote fewer opinions last year than in any year since 1994.  So there is a silver lining, I guess.
