The Texas Supreme Court issued no opinions with today’s orders. Interestingly, the Court denied the motion to recuse filed in In re Columbia Medical Center, Subsidiary, L.P. (No. 06-0416, which reportedly had been set for oral argument with the mandamus petition next Thursday.
UPDATE: The Court’s spokesman, Osler McCarthy, has confirmed that reports of a hearing on the Columbia motion were mere rumors. Accordingly, I have taken down today’s earlier post on that subject. Ugh!
