CHAIRMAN'S REPORT

Dear Litigation Section Members:
The formal merger of the Tort & Compensation Section into the
Litigation Section is now complete. All of us owe many thanks to Wayne
Prescott of Austin, for his diligent efforts in ramrodding the merger.
A number of you have called asked about the utilization of the Tort
& Compensation Section funds. I am happy to tell you that issue will soon
be resolved by the State Bar Board of Directors' action based upon the
recommendations of the Ad Hoc Committee formed with members of the
Litigation Section, the former Tort & Compensation Section, and repre-
sentatives of the Board of Directors of the State Bar of Texas.
The Litigation Section representatives were Steve McConnico and
myself. The representatives of the former Tort & Compensation Section
were Wayne Prescott and George Chandler. The State Bar Board of Direc-
tors representatives were Bob Dunn, President; Harriet Miers, President-
Elect; and Karen Johnson, Executive Director. The Ad Hoc Committee
met on several occasions and considered many different alternatives after
polling a wide range of people. In the end, the Ad Hoc Committee
recommended to the State Bar that a substantial sum of money be placed
with the Texas Foundation for Legal Ethics. The reason for this request is
that the Tort & Compensation Section, along with the Litigation Section,
have made a long-term commitment of funds to that organization. The
remainder of those funds will be placed with the State Bar Board of
Directors, to be used in a way that would benefit those involved in the Tort
& Compensation system. There are several specific proposals for these
funds, but the final decision will be left to the Board of Directors.
Finally, let me encourage all of you to attend the State Bar Conven-
tion in Corpus Christi, June 24 - June 28. The Litigation Section is once
again proud to host the Ultimate Trial Notebook A View From the Bench
program on June 25, 1992. The focus of this year's program will be an
input from trial judges. We are fortunate to have some of the best trial
judges from around the state available with tips for successful advocacy.
We look forward to seeing you in Corpus Christi.
David Keltner
Chairman
