    Texas State Board of Nursing v. Pedraza-Texas Administrative Law and Subject-Matter Jurisdiction

    The following article concerns a case brought before the Thirteenth Court of Appeals in Texas in August 2012. In this case, the Texas State Board of Nursing appealed the trial court’s decision to deny the Board’s plea to the jurisdiction. A plea to the jurisdiction is a delaying plea used to defeat a cause of action for lack of subject-matter jurisdiction. This plea is procedural and does not involve arguments regarding the merits of the cause of action.
