Texas Bar Journal
As with many of its other publications, West Publishing Company dominates the Texas market with its "desk copies" of Texas court rules. Over the past few years, those rules have undergone considerable mutation--in color, from white to blue to gray to red--and in length, from one volume to two volumes. There have also been numerous substantive changes. In view of the evolving nature of the "Texas Rules of Court" and the widespread use of these desk books by Texas attorneys, we feel it is about time to chronicle a few of the changes, make some constructive suggestions for improvement and, last but not least, poke a little fun at the finished product.
