Dallas Court of Appeals cases for the week of August 22, 2011

For the week of August 22, 2011, the Dallas Court of Appeals issued seven opinions in civil cases.  Four of these dispose of a case without a detailed discussion of the merits (e.g., dismissing a case for want of prosecution, dismissing a case for mootness, dismissing a case pursuant to settlement).  The remaining three cases are as follows:

Patlan v. Benitez (05-10-00996-CV) – Recites well-established (1) standard for reviewing trial court’s denial of motion for new trial; and (2) definition of a “resulting trust.”

Rodriguez v. Mumbo Jumbo, L.L.C. (05-10-00361-CV) – Recites well-established standard for reviewing trial court’s determination that a sanctionable act was committed.

Southwestern Bell Tel., L.P. v. Edwards (05-09-00606-CV) – Recites well-established (1)  standard for reviewing legal sufficiency of evidence; and (2) standard for reviewing judgment notwithstanding the verdict.
