Dallas Court of Appeals cases for the week of September 27, 2010

For the week of September 27, 2010, the Dallas Court of Appeals issued thirty opinions in civil cases.  Twenty-nine of these dispose of a case without a detailed discussion of the merits (e.g., dismissing a case for want of prosecution, dismissing a case for mootness, dismissing a case pursuant to settlement).  The remaining case is as follows:

Supulveda v. Medrano (05-10-00915-CV) – Recites well-established (1) rule that court of appeals does not have jurisdiction to enter writ of injunction in an election case; (2) rule that the appeal of an election contest becomes moot when absentee balloting has begun during the pendency of the appeal; and (3) rule that a court of appeals may, on affidavit or otherwise, ascertain matters of fact that are necessary to the exercise of its jurisdiction.
