Oral arguments are set for Nicholas v. San Antonio Water System. I previously wrote about that case here and here. CPS spent half a million dollars by November, 2013 defending the case. They could have settled the case for much less. Oral arguments are set for January, 2015 before the Texas Supreme Court. See San Antonio Express News report.
The Texas Supreme Court is infamous for being friendly to corporations and employers. The chances of success for the plaintiff are not high.
