Plaintiffs sued franchisor and its president and vice president. The president and vice president argued that they should not be subject to jurisdiction in Texas courts. The trial court determined that it did have jurisdiction. In a successful appeal, the court reversed and rendered judgment, dismissing president and vice president of franchisor from case based on lack of jurisdiction.
