Alex Brauer Discusses Proposed Specialized Business Court with Law360

With a proposed bill currently before the state legislature that would create a business court to preside over complex commercial disputes, the legal news outlet Law360 turned to Alex Brauer and other leading Texas litigators for their opinions on the need for such a specialized court.   One of the primary benefits would be a highly experienced bench. Under the proposal, business court judges would be appointed by the governor, but would have to meet a significantly higher qualification thresholds that district judges must have served at least four years on the bench and be older than 25. According to Mr. Brauer, the enhanced qualification level could help counterbalance the appointment system. "The governor presumably keeps kind of a close eye over that person because the governor has to appoint that person every two years or put someone else in there. You're going to have a much more, in most cases, sophisticated business person looking at your dispute versus a kind of a random pick of the draw with state court judges." Among the concerns surrounding the creation of the business court is that could eventually discourage jury trial proceedings. But Mr. Brauer said there might be benefits to having fewer business disputes heard by juries. "You may have cases being decided at an earlier stage and with less resources being used," he said.  To read “Texas Litigators Skeptical of State Business Court Plan,” visit https://www.law360.com/articles/1580894/texas-litigators-skeptical-of-state-business-court-plan [Subscription Required.]

Bailey Brauer Secures Appellate Win for Client Embroiled in Property Dispute

The Dallas Court of Appeals has affirmed in large part the 366th Judicial District Court of Collin County judgment for Bailey Brauer’s client in MQ Prosper North , LLC and Donald Silverman v. Lisa Coulter, a long-running property dispute in Prosper, Texas.                                                         Lisa Coulter purchased her home in 2015. Once part of a larger tract of land, the home sits on a two-acre island surrounded by approximately 12 acres of land off Preston Road owned by MQ. The single mother was initially allowed to use an existing driveway providing direct access to Preston. However, over time she was forced instead to use a less direct, unimproved easement that skirted the outer boundary of the property. Although Ms. Coulter secured permission from Prosper to pave the easement, MQ attempted to stop the improvements, also claiming the home’s water, septic, internet and electrical lines improperly crossed through MQ property.   The dispute ended up in trial in 2019, with the court ordering MQ pay for actual damages and emotional distress, plus attorneys' fees.   “Over time, the pattern of harassment escalated, with the developers cutting the family’s water and communication lines right before Christmas one year,” said Ms. Coulter’s attorney, Bailey Brauer co-founder Alex Brauer. “Although the actual damages are modest, for Lisa the entire chapter has been an ongoing nightmare. To have the courts affirm that finding is gratifying and will allow Lisa to move forward.”
