Denise Davis, former House Parliamentarian who–along with her deputy Chris Griesel–resigned in protest at the end of the 80th Session due to Speaker Craddick’s disregard of their parliamentary advice and his assertion he did not have to recognize a privileged motion from the floor (which just so happened to be a motion to replace him as Speaker), will practice as Special Counsel in the Legislation and Policy practice group with Baker Botts’ Austin office.


No word on whether Chris Griesel, an appellate and parliamentary expert, will join her there.
