This blog does not ordinarily cover family-law appeals, but the grant of mandamus relief in In re Barnes involves a novel issue about the scope of a fundamental statute in that area: “We are not persuaded that [Tex. Fam. Code] section 153.002 reaches so far as to allow the family court to require a parent who does not have the right to determine a child’s primary residence and who has little or no possession time to live in a specific school district so that his child can maintain eligibility to attend schools within that district.” No. 05-21-00807-CV (May 27, 2022) (mem. op.).
