Over the past week, I have attended two CLE events featuring a panel of appellate judges. At the 29th Annual Litigation Update Institute, Chief Justice Wallace Jefferson, Justice Paul Green, and Justice Debra Lehrmann enlightened attendees on current events at the Texas Supreme Court. Today, Fifth Circuit Judges Pete Benavides and Pricilla Owen and U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel (formerly Chief Justice of Austin’s Third Court of Appeals) spoke to the Austin Bar Civil Appellate Law Section on federal versus state appellate practice.
I live-tweeted both talks. For those interested in what the judges had to say, the Twitter streams appear below.
