                  Texas Office Obtains Summary Judgment Dismissal in Legal Malpractice Case

                  • Winget, Spadafora & Schwartzberg, LLP’s Texas office obtained a summary judgment dismissal on behalf of a client in a legal malpractice case pending in Harris County, Texas. In the case, the firm's client, a well-known law firm based in Galveston, Texas, was sued based on its representation of a large energy company in a wrongful death case. The lawsuit was brought by a co-defendant in the underlying case, whose president alleged that he was pressured to "alter his testimony" in the underlying case in favor of the energy company under threat of termination of the company's contract with the energy company. When the contract was terminated, the company sued the law firm and its energy company client, alleging that they conspired to tortiously interfere with the company's contract with the energy company. In the motion for summary judgment filed on behalf of the law firm, Houston managing partner Martin Schexnayder argued that, pursuant to the "attorney immunity" doctrine, the law firm could not be sued by a non-client for actions taken in the course of representation of its client. The trial court agreed, granting the motion and dismissing the claims against the law firm with prejudice.
