Hedges and Hawthorne to Speak on New TAMES System


On March 29, 2012, Fourteenth Court of Appeals Chief Justice Adele Hedges and Texas Supreme Court Clerk Blake Hawthorne will speak to the Austin Bar Civil Appellate Law Section on "The Texas Appeals Management and E-filing System: Making Our Appellate Courts More Efficient and Transparent." This talk goes along with an article Blake published in the most recent issue of The Appellate Advocate.

The Supreme Court's mandatory e-filing initiative has now been live for a year. Several intermediate appellate courts, including the Third Court of Appeals here in Austin, are following suit. The TAMES system will bridge the gaps between e-filing, the courts' internal case management systems, and online docketing. Don't miss what is sure to be an informative look at the future of Texas appellate practice.

This event will take place at noon at Green Pastures and has been approved for one hour of CLE credit. To guarantee your reservation, send a check for $20 payable to “Civil Appellate Section” to Matthew Ploeger, Vinson & Elkins LLP,2801 Via Fortuna, Suite 100, Austin, Texas 78746 by Monday, March 26, 2012.
