A: A Texas attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. As a GENERAL matter in ANY type of case, if an appeal contains multiple elements, courts could rule categorically on them, denying some and affirming others. A Texas attorney who works in Employment Law would have the most meaningful insight here. You could consider reaching out to Texas employment law attorneys (ones you find on this site or on your own). With COVID, many law firms offer virtual consults - if you have the ruling and own a camera phone, you could snap a pic and send it to a law firm to discuss further if you and the attorney agree that a consult could be worthwhile. Good luck
