  • In 1989, the 14th State Court of Appeals upheld District Judge Roy Engelke’s order requiring the University of Texas Medical Branch to admit two medical students who cheated on a term paper. The appeals court has ordered that the students be allowed to attend UTMB’s medical school until a hearing Sept. 13, said deputy appeals court clerk David Richardson. The hearing would determine whether the temporary order should remain in effect.
