Defense of Lawsuit Filed by ERCOT

Represented Frontera in a suit brought by ERCOT which manages the electric power grid in Texas. Our client generated electricity which was sold through the grid. ERCOT refused to pay the full price for our client and a suit was initiated which resulted in a settlement of a $15 million claim by our client. Six months later, ERCOT unilaterally recalculated the transaction by retroactively charging our client $750,000. We filed suit in U.S. District Court in Austin and recovered a judgment for $750,000 plus attorneys fees, prejudgment interest, and court costs. ERCOT filed notice of appeal and ultimately settled the case.
