About The SE Texas Record

OUR GOAL at The SE Texas Record is to cover the state’s legal system in a way that enables you, our readers, to make the public business your business.

The SE Texas Record will focus upon civil actions in our courts as other Record newspapers do in Illinois, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Northern California, Florida, St. Louis and Louisiana. Torts- as they’re known– are too often ignored by the prevailing media, yet their progress has a profound impact on the people of our state.

We aim to protect the public’s interest by reporting on SE Texas' civil justice system thoroughly and vigorously.

To be sure, whether one agrees or disagrees with the happenings at our courthouses, no one should believe that what happens at them is the norm.

Many accomplished local plaintiffs’ attorneys and erstwhile activists would argue that, in fact, they are the great leaders of their time, holding that Texas has it right and everyone else has it wrong.

On the flipside, many who drive this country’s economic engine– small businessmen, medical professionals and corporate executives– argue the opposite. They hold that plaintiffs’ attorneys use frivolous lawsuits to game the system and pillage private property. If every state were like ours, they say, America would be out of business.

At The SE Texas Record, we hope to provide an objective view of the playing field so that all of us can decide for ourselves.
