Abstract

The November 1984 issue of the Texas Bar Journal contains an article discussing Texas writs of error and writ history ("Does West Write the Right Writs?"). The article examines the two most commonly used sources for Texas writ history: the West Writs of Error and Discretionary Review Tables, and Shepard's Texas Citations. The conclusion was that both contain a number of significant error and omissions.

Actually, there is a third and generally more accurate source for recent Texas writ history. Marketed by Lawyers' Cooperative, the same folks who publish A.L.R. and the Lawyer's Edition of the U.S. Reports, Auto-Cite is a computerbased citation verification and research system which includes writ histories for Texas cases.
