Appellate Specialist David Coale Comments on Midterm Election Results
LPCH partner and appellate specialist David Coale recently commented on the midterm election results in numerous publications, including Texas Lawyer, The Texas Tribune, The Texas Lawbook, Dallas Business Journal, Law360, San Antonio Express-News, and Dallas Observer.
The Texas Lawbook quotes Coale saying, "Yesterday’s election is the biggest moment of change for that Court since its founding in 1893. Overnight, the Fifth Court went from all-Republican to majority-Democratic, including a new Chief Justice." Coale also comments in Texas Lawyer saying, “You’re not going to see a lot of revolutionary changes. But in about a year, you’re going to see some changes on some issues—willingness to overturn jury verdicts, summary judgment rulings and compelling arbitration."
