Every year brings its share of amazing moments — good and bad — to our nation, and 2012 was no exception. Nationally, the election dominated the news, social networking sites, and conversations throughout the country. The year also brought us the U.S. Supreme Court upholding the Affordable Care Act, Superstorm Sandy that wreaked havoc on the Northeast, and then the unthinkable: a lone gunman killing 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., after he shot and killed his mother. In Texas, 2012 once again presented issues as diverse as the state itself, ranging from our continuing battle to quench the state’s drought-stricken lands to the fiery demise of iconic State Fair of Texas animated figure “Big Tex.” The year also brought significant developments to the legal profession and caselaw in the Lone Star State and nationally. The Texas Bar Journal Board of Editors has put together a series of articles highlighting some major topics from 2012. The articles are only a sampling of the legal issues from the year, and the opinions expressed are those of the authors. We thank the contributors and welcome your input.
