Pasted below is a nugget collected by Pamela Stanton Baron, a leading Texas Supreme Court watcher/practitioner who either attends or listens to all of the Court’s oral arguments. More "outtakes" will follow periodically. Thanks to Pam for allowing me to post them here.
From Reliance National Indemnity Co. v. Advanced Temporaries, Inc., argued on October 18, 2006:
Counsel: And I want to commend the Court on City of Keller, which I think is a phenomenal opinion. I think its the kind of comprehensive contribution to our jurisprudence that’s uniquely within the province of this Court versus the Legislature.
Justice ONeill: Oh, come on.
Justice ONeill: He’s going to be insufferable [presumably referring to Justice Brister, Keller's author].
