What is a “waiver letter”?

When one party files a petition for review with the Texas Supreme Court, the opposing party can file (1) a response or (2) a waiver letter, stating that a response will not be filed unless and until requested by the Supreme Court. If not filing a response, a waiver letter is not absolutely required, but it might be considered disrespectful to the Supreme Court if an opposing party files neither a response nor a waiver letter.
