Supreme Court Victory – Only 59 Days After Oral Argument

  • April 24, 2015

On April 24, 2015, the Texas Supreme Court unanimously ruled in favor of the Firm’s client in JLG Trucking v Garza.  The case arose from a car accident.  Actually, it arose from two car accidents.  The plaintiff was in two car wrecks, within a few months of each other, but the trial court only let the jury hear about one of them.  The Supreme Court held that it was wrong to exclude evidence of the second car wreck. 

Beck Redden appellate lawyers David M. Gunn and William Peterson acted as counsel in the Supreme Court.  David Gunn orally argued the case on February 26, 2015, and the Court issued its 9-0 opinion in under two months.  The Beck Redden lawyers worked with the trial team, John Skaggs and Lynse Guerra of the Skaggs Guerra firm. Please see the attached opinion.
