The Supreme Court of Texas today issued five opinions. In four cases, the defendants won. In the fifth, nobody won, the court choosing to revoke its order granting review because the plaintiff died. Judge for yourself whether the court foreordained the outcome on remand. See Weekly Orders page here.
We should also note that the court refused to hear oral argument in three of the four cases it decided on the merits. Having such certainty in one’s wisdom must feel mighty good.
P.S. Kurt Vonnegut — rest in peace — coined "so it goes" for Billy Pilgrim in Slaughterhouse Five. He meant it ironically. So it goes.
