how the voting clusters at the Texas Supreme Court compare to those on the U.S. Supreme Court;

the longer-term trend of which Justices on the Texas Supreme Court have had their own views prevail in closely divided. Cases, as the Court has absorbed new members in recent years; and
the role of amici curiae in the Texas Supreme Court.
