Beck Redden Wins in Texas Supreme Court
- December 17, 2012
The Supreme Court of Texas recently ruled in favor of a Beck Redden client, denying the opposition’s petition for review after merits briefing in an important family law matter. The proceeding arose from a suit affecting the parent-child relationship, and the petition presented novel issues regarding trial procedure under the Family Code and the Supreme Court’s appellate jurisdiction. After the Court called for briefs on the merits, it referred the case to the State Bar of Texas Appellate Section’s Pro Bono Committee, which chose Beck Redden to represent the pro se respondent.
Chad Flores led the Beck Redden appellate team with William Peterson. For Beck Redden’s client, the victory brings the dispute to a final resolution in time for the family to enjoy a special holiday season.
