Abstract

Subsequent histories have been apart of Texas case citation since the turn of the century. For most of that time, the information for subsequent histories was gleaned from paper sources, including the Texas Subsequent History Tables and Texas Shepard's Citations. The subsequent history information available to practitioners from these sources was limited by the controlled set of notations used by legal publishers. With the advent of electronic sources, this set of notations has become inadequate. This article traces the history of civil case notations for subsequent history, explains why this system is no longer adequate, and proposes a revised system of notations.
