Holding there is “neither specific nor general jurisdiction” over our clients for the more than $10 million of claims asserted against them, the Texas Court of Appeals, Third District, at Austin recently reversed a Travis County trial court judge’s ruling and rendered judgment granting our client’s special appearance while dismissing the case against them.

In WaterWorks Corral Creek, LLC and Saltwater Disposal Systems, LLC, Appellants v. AquaTech Saltwater Disposal LLC d/b/a Aqua Tech Water & Disposal, LLC and Eric Schmitz, Appellees (NO. 03-16-00309-CV) our clients faced claims for breach of contract, tortious interference with existing contract, tortious interference with prospective business relationship, and civil conspiracy. The case centered on a letter of intent and failed acquisition of saltwater disposal wells.
