People ask if the EDTX is back to oral hearings. It depends on the court, but let me share some instructions I received for a hearing later this week.
New Interim EDTX U.S. Attorney Stephen Cox spoke recently on False Claims Act and regulatory issues that may be of interest to practitioners.
Appointed by Attorney General William P. Barr and sworn in by Judge Michael Truncale in Beaumont, Cox will serve until a successor is confirmed by the Senate or 120 days expires, whichever comes first.
Former EDTX U.S. Attorney John Ratcliffe resigned from Congress yesterday to assume his new duties as Director of National Intelligence. In other news, current U.S. Attorney Joe Brown resigned yesterday as well.

The revisions to Judge Albright’s OGP are now out.
