Texas Supreme Court Orders & Opinion 9/7/07

By September 7, 2007March 8th, 2019Jurisdiction, Supreme Court Orders

After a very busy couple of weeks, the Texas Supreme Court released one opinion with today’s orders.  In Texas A&M University System v. Koseoglu, the Court held that a plaintiff who, due to pleading defects, loses a plea to the jurisdiction based on sovereign immunity is not entitled to a remand when amending the pleading could not cure the defects.  The Court also determined that Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 51.014(a)(8) vests appellate courts with jurisdiction to decide a government official’s appeal from the denial of a plea to the jurisdiction based on immunity.
