Appellate Court Tosses $2.9M Judgment in Breach of Contract Case

By on January 18, 2018 in Contracts, Energy, Litigation-Business

Houston civil trial lawyer John H. Kim, founder of The Kim Law Firm, and attorney Tim Rothberg persuaded a Texas appeals court to drop a $2.9 million judgment against energy clients High Cotton Holdings LLC and Ranger O&G Operating LLC last week, according to a post on the website of Androvett Legal Media and Marketing.

The Texas 4th Court of Appeals in San Antonio found that the lawyer retained by the two energy companies prior to The Kim Law Firm filed an agreement in a breach of contract lawsuit without signing it, and failed to keep the companies apprised of court events. Due to those actions, both High Cotton and Ranger were not served with the complaint or made aware of the $2.9 million default judgment.

The 4th Court of Appeals reversed and rendered the judgments and remanded the case to state court for trial on the merits.
