TexFile to Launch on September 1

The Texas Lawyer blog is reporting that TexFile, the new e-filing system for the entire state is set to launch on September 1.  Tyler Technologies is currently training attorneys, law firms, and bar associations to use the new system. They are coordinating efforts with software companies and counties that handle their own case management systems as well as several companies that currently provide e-filing services in preparation for the start-up date. According to the article, once TexFile is in use, an attorney will be able to  file a court document by sending it to one of at least six e-filing service providers, which will then submit it to TexFile. More information about the e-filing system is available at www.texfile.com.

The Fort Bend County Bar Association will hold one such event at its July 25 CLE luncheon, which is open to both members and non-members.

Included in the report are in-depth discussions on the operation of sections of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) in the context of the executive power . Discussions of sections 212(f),  214(a)(1) and 215(a)(1) report on how the sections have been used by Presidents, along with relevant case law and precedents.
