Filed Date: 1989

Clearinghouse coding in progress

Case Summary

The State of Texas, the Governor, the Director of the Texas Department of Corrections, and members of the Texas Board of Corrections brought into Alberti v. Sheriff of Harris Co. as a third-party defendant (see JC-TX-0001) petitioned the Fifth Circuit for a writ of mandamus to compel transfer of the third-party complaint to a different court. In 1989, the Fifth Circuit granted petitioners' request in part, concluding that mandamus should issue requiring transfer to a different court of the remedy portion of the third party action. The court declined, however, to transfer any other portion of the litigation. In re Clements, 881 F.2d 145 (5th Cir. 1989). The only PACER docket available for this case is the docket for Alberti v. Sheriff of Harris Co. (see JC-TX-0001), which is virtually empty.
