What You Need to Know
- The Texas Supreme Court reversed a dismissal of a legal malpractice claim, finding the plaintiff showed enough evidence to proceed.
- The opinion avoided a ruling on the hotly debated issue of attorneys using an anti-SLAPP law as a defense.
- Plaintiffs claim the issue was ripe and should have been clarified to resolve conflicting rulings in the lower courts.
A lending company suing its law firm for malpractice got relief at the Texas Supreme Court, but the justices opted not to address a key issue—whether attorneys can use a free-speech defense.
The opinion written by Justice Jane Bland restored the plaintiff’s right to sue, but the reversal was based on a finding that their prima facie evidence supported a legal malpractice claim.
