Texas Supreme Court hears oral arguments

The Supreme Court of Texas heard oral arguments on Thursday, December 5, 2019. Both sides had 20 minutes to present their arguments and answer questions from the justices.

We anticipate an opinion to be issued sometime between March 2020 and the end of June 2020.

“I am grateful for the presence of those who traveled to Austin to be present for today’s hearing,” said Bishop Scott Mayer. “Now we await the deliberations of the justices. As we do so, let us find patience in grace, hope in prayer, and strength in action as we continue the work of being the hands and feet of our loving, liberating, life-giving God in our part of North Texas.”
