Texas Bar Journal
All in all, though, the new Rules of Appellate Procedure, effective Sept. 1, 1986, should be welcomed by bench and bar alike. The cooperation of this state's two high courts has produced a coordinated system of rules that should reduce confusion among attorneys and court personnel. In the process, the rules formerly applicable only to civil appeals have been reorganized, and are now presented in a format that more logically follows the flow of an appeal.
