The Texas Supreme Court will hear one argument on Leap Day, which is Wednesday, 2/29/12. The argument will be held in Laredo, as part of the Court's program to get away from its Austin base occasionally.
The case is Loaisiga v. Cerda, and a principal issue is whether a healthcare-liability claim is stated when the plaintiff alleges that a sexual assault occurred during a medical exam. Another issue is whether it is sufficient for the report by the plaintiff's expert to be based on the pleadings.
