voucher for payment to
a court reporter for
taking oral deposition
of a witness of a pend-
ing case, under Article
2423a, Vernon's Civil
Statutes and related
We have received your letter of August 6, 1959, which
reads as follows:
"This department has received a voucher
presented by your department for payment to
Jack K. Tingle, a court reporter, for taking
oral depositions from a witness. This voucher
is being returned to you as we are doubtful
that it is properly payable by the state in
view of the holdings in Attorney General's
Opinion number V-409 and Articles 2324a,
2324, 2326, 3746, and Rule 194 of R.C.P.
This department will appreciate hearing from
you as to your findings in the event you find
that this voucher is payable by the state.
There is no litigation pending which will have
a bearing on this question."

reads in part as follows:
