Mark Trachtenberg in Texas Lawbook: SCOTX Wipes $16.5M Judgment in Complicated Partnership Dispute


The Texas Lawbook wrote a detailed article about Haynes and Boone, LLP’s victory on behalf of VHSC Cement in a Texas Supreme Court case involving VHSC’s purchase of the assets of a failed partnership EMC Products, LP, in a foreclosure sale. The article quoted Haynes and Boone, LLP Partner Mark Trachtenberg, who led the Haynes and Boone appellate team in representing VHSC.

Here is an excerpt:

Haynes and Boone appellate partner Mark Trachtenberg, who presented oral arguments on behalf of all of the defendants last September, called Friday’s ruling a “complete victory.”

“It’s a reaffirmation that plaintiffs cannot rely on conclusory and speculative damages testimony and that damages experts need to be able to support their assumptions with the facts and connect the dots, or they’re vulnerable on appeal,” he said. “The judgment against our clients should have never been entered in the first place.”

Haynes and Boone was hired on the case the day after the verdict to represent VHSC and [Clinton] Pike. The Haynes and Boone appellate team also included Partners Nina Cortell and Ben Mesches, Counsel Ryan Paulsen and Mike Hatchell, as well as Associate Andrew Guthrie.
