CIVIL LITIGATION/APPELLATE SECTION VIRTUAL MEETING
OCTOBER 19, NOON
SPEAKER: Jim Pikl
Jim Pikl is a Texas civil trial and appellate lawyer with 38 years of experience in business litigation and Constitutional cases. He is a partner with the firm Scheef & Stone, LLP in their Frisco, Texas offices. Jim was one of the lawyers who litigated the Rohrmoos case all the way from trial to the Texas Supreme Court.
TOPIC: Attorney's Fees After Rohrmoos
In 2019, the Texas Supreme Court departed from years of precedent in the case Rohrmoos v. UTSW. There, the Supreme Court adopted the “lode star” method of determining when and how a prevailing party might “shift” its own fees to the other party in the case. This change has ramifications for all Texas litigators, both those seeking to shift fees and those representing parties from whom shifted fees are being sought.
CLE: 1.0 Hour (CCBA MEMBERS ONLY)
NOTE: THE ZOOM AND CLE LINKS WILL BE AVAILABLE IMMEDIATELY AFTER REGISTRATION.
