What does “writ ref’d n.r.e.” mean?

A case’s writ history is “writ ref’d n.r.e.” (also known as “writ refused, no reversible error”) when the Texas Supreme Court is not satisfied that the opinion of the court of civil appeals in all aspects has correctly declared the law but is of the opinion that the application for writ of error presents no error that is reversible. The Supreme Court used this designation for applications for writ of error filed from 1946 through 1987.
