From KERA: 

A tremendous amount of attention is now on the U.S. Supreme Court and the confirmation process for Amy Coney Barrett.

Meanwhile, starting with early voting on Oct. 13, voters in Texas will be able to make important judicial choices of their own, including who will sit on the Texas Supreme Court. It’s the highest state court for all civil cases.

The Texas Supreme Court traveled to Lubbock on Thursday to hear oral arguments for two cases on their docket, filling the Texas Tech University School of Law's Hunt Courtroom with students and community members eager to hear a supreme court hearing for themselves.
