Alencar v. Shaw (05-09-01262-CV) –  Recites well-established (1) standard for determining whether “minimum contacts” are established for personal jurisdiction analysis; (2) standard for determining whether “general jurisdiction” is established for personal jurisdiction analysis; and (3) standard for reviewing trial court’s ruling on special appearance.

In re P.C.S. (05-08-00438-CV) –  Recites well-established (1) standard for reviewing trial court’s construction of a statute; and (2) standard for reviewing trial court’s setting of child support payments.

Turner v. Franklin (05-08-00011-CV) – Recites well-established (1) standard for reviewing traditional summary judgment; (2) standard for reviewing no-evidence summary judgment; and (3) elements required to establish gross negligence.

Wikert v. Year One, Inc. (05-09-01543-CV) –  Recites well-established holding that whether a court has personal jurisdiction over a defendant is a question of law that often requires the resolution of factual issues.
