"Judicial Tort Reform"

That's the concept behind a new article, "Judicial Tort Reform in Texas," in the Texas Review of Litigation from David Anderson (Texas) (hook 'em), summarized helpfully by the blog of plaintiffs' firm Perlmutter & Schuelke

The article (not available for free online) examines tort opinions in 2004 and 2005 of the Texas Supreme Court, concluding that the Court is more defendant-friendly than average, in particular in its use of "no evidence" as a way to reverse a jury's factual findings.
