Recent Appellate Victory

September 19th, 2019

Patrick Cohoon with Leger Ketchum & Cohoon recently secured a Firm client’s trial court victory in an appeal made to Texas’ Fifth Court of Appeals in Dallas. In the underlying suit, the client’s principal was personally targeted for liability under commercial leases. Mr. Cohoon obtained dismissal of the suit in Travis County’s 201st District Court based on special appearance. Plaintiff appealed based on an undisclosed-principal theory. After briefing and oral arguments, the court agreed with the Firm’s client and upheld the trial court’s dismissal with prejudice.
