Theaola Robinson v KTRK Television Inc et al No 201154895 234th District Court Harris County Tex October 8 2014

Represented a television station in a libel per se action brought in response to the station's true reports on the closing of a local charter school due to (among other things) a lack of adequate funds and allegations of financial mismanagement and failure to properly account for state funds. After the court of appeals reversed and remanded the trial court's denial of the station's Anti-SLAPP Motion and dismissed the case against the station, on remand, the Harris County District Court granted Haynes and Boone the highest award of attorneys' fees and costs ever ordered under the anti-SLAPP statute in Texas from an individual plaintiff.
