We earlier posted about a personal injury lawyer that filed a motion to recuse four of our Texas Supreme Court Justices from hearing a wrongful death case. The motion, which alleged that the justices were biased in favor of defendants, was based in large part on a law review article by a UT professor that found the Court ruled in favor of defendants in 2004 and 2005 over 80% of the time. Not surprisingly, the court denied the motion today. Oral argument on the merits of the case is scheduled for next week.
