This Spring, the Appellate Section’s Member Services Committee sent a survey to the Texas Supreme Court and to each of the fourteen courts of appeals. The Committee co-chairs, Kent Rutter and JoAnn Storey, prepared the survey and tabulated its results. The survey consists of 64 questions, which cover brief writing, oral argument, motion practice, and miscellaneous topics.

Kent Rutter presented these results at the State Bar of Texas Advanced Civil Appellate Practice Course in September 2009.
