Abstract

Recently, the Texas Supreme Court has embraced an important recapitulation of the scope of evidentiary review in cases governed by the preponderance of the evidence standard of review. A similar approach has been applied by the court to cases controlled by the clear and convincing evidence standard of review. This article explores and explains these important developments.
