A blog associated with The Dallas Morning News and KVUE-TV here in Austin have both run new stories on the Texas Supreme Court’s "backlog problem."  As near as I can tell, neither has unearthed any previously unreported information, so the timing is something of a mystery.  Yesterday’s blog entry refers to a Texas Watch report issued February 20, and this evening’s KVUE broadcast shows some of the same footage used in the WFAA-TV story (discussed here) from February 27.  Political rehash, anyone?
