We’ve outlined in previous blogs several ways you can strengthen your disability case in preparation for the appeals process. One of the most important ways is work with your lawyer and doctors to ensure your medical records on file are detailed and complete, and clearly document your disability. This record becomes extremely important in the event your appeal has to go to trial.
But there is a second way to help your case that might surprise you—your vote for Governor. According to a recently issued report by Court Watch called “Thumbs on the Scale: A Retrospective of the Texas Supreme Court, 2000-2010,” the Texas Supreme Court of the past decade (which has had many members appointed by our current governor) has consistently ruled against Texas consumers on the side of corporate interests. Court Watch found that consumers lost 79% of the cases brought before the Texas Supreme Court between 2000 and 2010. Sadly, a large number of Texans with legitimate cases fought their battles and won at trial—only to see their judgment taken away by the Texas Supreme Court.

Court Watch is a project of the Texas Watch Foundation, a non-partisan 501(c)(3) public education nonprofit organization. Texas Watch Foundation is dedicated to fair and open access to the civil justice system for all Texans. Court Watch has been monitoring and reporting on the Texas Supreme Court and the impact its decisions have on Texas families since 1996.
