Appellant Brief Filed in Nettles Case in Dallas

Attorneys for Dawn Nettles have filed their Appellant’s Brief  in the 5th Court of Appeals in Dallas.  The brief asks the court of appeals to overturn the Dallas trial court’s ruling that GTECH has “derivative immunity”.  The Dallas trial court’s decision in Ms. Nettles case is directly opposite to the decision reached by the Austin court where the overwhelming majority of the Fun 5’s cases are pending.  In Austin, the trial court found that GTECH was not entitled to claim derivative immunity based on a recent Texas Supreme Court decision.
