There is generally not a deadline for a Texas court of appeals to issue an opinion. Court of appeals justices often endeavor to issue opinions with 90 days after the date that the appeal was submitted (although sometimes it takes much longer than this). When there is an oral argument, the date of the oral argument is the date that the appeal is submitted (also known as the submission date). When there is not an oral argument, the submission date is normally listed on the court of appeals letter which states that there will not be an oral argument.
