Indexes and registers, 1892-1922
The Texas 3rd Court of Appeals has intermediate appellate jurisdiction of both civil and criminal cases appealed from lower courts in the 3rd Supreme Judicial District of Texas; in civil cases where judgment rendered exceeds $100, exclusive of costs, and other civil proceedings as provided by law; and (since 1981) in criminal cases except in post-conviction writs of habeas corpus and where the death penalty has been imposed. During the time period covered by these records, the Texas 3rd Court of Civil Appeals heard only civil appeals from county and district courts in the 3rd Supreme Judicial District. This series includes direct (by appellant) and reverse (by appellee) indexes to cause numbers from 1892 to 1922. These are vowel indexes, and, in a few instances, where space prohibited the continuation of a particular letter-vowel sequence, the entries are continued at the back of the volume. For post-1922 cause numbers, researchers must refer to the South Western Reporter.
The record of applications for licenses to practice law was created by the Board of Legal Examiners of the Third Supreme Judicial District. According to the provisions of Senate Bill 56, 28th Legislature, Regular Session (1903), each of the Courts of Civil Appeals was required to keep a register of all applicants, their grades, and an abstract of licenses. The record of applications for licenses to practice law fulfills two of the three requirements, providing name and residence of the applicant, grade average or placement in prescribed courses of study, overall average, and date license was granted or refused. Date span is 1903-1919.
