Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes - Double Whammy for The Texas Anti-Slapp from Gov. Abbott and the Texas Supreme Court

On June 2, 2019, Gov. Abbott signed HB 2730. It will become law on September 1, 2019 (and does not apply retroactively).

While this may be the death knell for my little blog, some of the changes are certainly positive. I’ll be discussing some of the changes over the coming months.

On May 24, 2019, I posited the question of whether the Texas Supreme Court intended to weigh in on Right of Association by taking up the Grant v. Pivot Tech case.

Well wonder no more — The TSC has requested full briefing with the final reply brief due on August 6, 2019.

While I thought there was a risk the TSC might not weigh in given the legislative changes coming, worry no longer.

So at least there will be a few updates for this little blog heading into the end of 2019.
