Texas Supreme Court in Laredo

We’ve heard in the news that the Texas Supreme Court is making a historic visit to Laredo to hear oral arguments.

The Texas Young Lawyers Association
invites you to watch it on your computer if you can’t make it out to Texas A&M International University at 9am on this most beautiful leap day.

Can’t make it to TAMIU today?

No problem. You can watch the proceedings of the Texas Supreme Court live from TAMIU on your computer by logging on to the Texas Supreme Court website or by visiting:

Wondering what oral arguments will be heard?? Victor Villarreal, District 19 Director for the Texas Young Lawyers Association and one of the organizers indicates:

Today, the Texas Supreme Court will hear Raul Ernesto Loaisiga, M.D. v. Guadalupe Cerda, a case from Cameron County and the court of appeals in Corpus Christi and Edinburg. A principal legal issue in the case is whether the alleged sexual assault during the medical exam constitutes a health care-liability claim that must meet the requirements of Texas’ restrictions on medical-malpractice law. One of those requirements is for an expert report to address whether the doctor was negligent in the patient’s treatment. A second issue is whether the expert’s report can be based solely on what Cerda pleaded in her lawsuit.

Oral arguments will be held at the TAMIU Student Center Ballroom which is on the second floor of the Student Center. Arguments begin at 9:00 a.m. and doors open at 8:00 a.m. to allow time for parking and security. We ask that briefcases and backpacks be left in your vehicles to speed security scanning at the doors.

Way to go, Victor and team that organized all the details to make this happen!!

I know this is a past event but it is the best fitting visual of the Texas Supreme Court during their visit to Laredo.

    Any exposure to life outside Laredo does this community good. Lots of folks can/t/don’t travel, so bringing these events to Laredo enlightens the whole community.
