Judge Sides with Gardere Client Stallion and Refused to Delay Suit


Law360 reported on Judge Brent Gamble's decision to refuse to put Stallion Oilfield Services Inc.'s suit against Stagg Marine Inc. Principal Tommy Angelle on hold. Mr. Angelle had filed a motion to abate stating that an ongoing criminal investigation would force him to refuse to testify, prejudicing his chances of prevailing in the civil suit. Stallion argued, "assertion of legal privilege alone does not present a legal basis for abatement." Judge Gamble sided with Stallion noting that Mr. Angelle's motion "lacks merit."

Stallion is represented in the kickback suit against Stagg Marine by Gardere Attorneys Geoffrey H. Bracken, Rhonda Reed Weiner and Mike Seely.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
