COURT OF APPEALS STOPS NEW TRIAL IN BISD TRANSPORATION CASE AFTER MIGDALIA LOPEZ THUMBS HER NOSE AT TEXAS SUPREME COURT

Historically, once a judge gets caught willfully ignoring the Texas Supreme Court, and a court of appeals is forced to stop the judge, the judge recuses themselves from any further proceedings.  If Migdalia Lopez was willing to ignore the plain letter of the law as handed down by the Texas Supreme Court, why would we believe she followed the law in granting the new trial?


 
The actual Mandamus is not accessible on line at this time - just the order.  Click for link showing law.
 
Here is another link, explaining a subsequent opinion by the Texas Supreme Court, which puts a very heavy burden on BISD in order to get a new trial.  How much will BISD spend to protect Art Rendon?  When will the endless spending of taxpayer money to defend the indefensible end?
 
 
This case proves emergency stays are possible.  Had an interim appeal been taken in Lincoln Park on the argument the AG's opinion never addressed the issue of superfluous language a stay would have issued and UT would not be moving on Lincoln Park.  But, these decisions are made by the client and not the lawyer.  Rose Gowen would be toast by now had the Interim Appeal been taken.
