On Appeal, Hartline Barger LLP Oil & Gas Client Dismissed from Lawsuit Filed by Dimmit County

Posted on October 3, 2018 by Hartline Barger - News

As reported by Law360, Hartline Barger partner Mike Terry was able to successfully get firm client, a global oilfield services company, dismissed on appeal from a lawsuit filed by Dimmit County. Dimmit County had filed suit against our client, along with 28 other oil and gas companies operating in the Eagle Ford Shale, alleging that they caused major road damage in the rural community. Twenty-two of those companies, including our client, appealed to Texas’ Fourth Court of Appeals, seeking dismissal under Texas Rule of Civil Procedure 91a. The three-judge panel sided with our client, along with the 21 other oilfield businesses, finding that the trial court was wrong not to toss the claims.
