Garrett v. Borden – Case Brief Summary (Texas)

In Garrett v. Borden, 283 S.W.3d 852, 853 (Tex. 2009), the Supreme Court construed the word "copy" as used in Tex. Civ. Prac. & Rem. Code Ann. Section 14.005(a)(2) to include something other than a mechanical reproduction, and it held that the inmate's hand-typed, verbatim reproduction of the written decision on the inmate's grievance complied with the statute's requirement to provide a copy of the grievance system's written decision for purposes of demonstrating that the inmate exhausted administrative remedies. Garrett, 283 S.W.3d at 853.
