Texas Bar Journal
In the January 1986 issue of the Texas Bar Journal, this column recounted the checkered tale of the official Texas court reports, from the birth of the Texas Reports in the first State Legislature, to their mysterious death at the hands of the Legislature in 1963, and their equally mysterious resurrection by the most recent session, in the form of the Texas Government Code. The authors have since been deluged with reader mail on the subject, and have decided to share excerpts from both letters.
