Law360 Covers Duel Over Appeal Bond in Eagle Ford Shale Case


Law360 covered a 4th District Court of Appeals decision to hear oral arguments in September in an energy company's complaint that Longview Energy Co. is asking for an excessive appeals bond. A judge previously sided with Longview in its request that two of its directors and their companies, The Huff Energy Fund LP and Riley-Huff Energy Group LLC, each post bonds equal to the statutory cap of $25 million or half of their net worth. The appeal is concurrent with the Huff parties' appeal of a previous decision awarding Longview money and assets Longview said it was owed after it was stripped of the opportunity to buy 46,000 acres in the Eagle Ford Shale.

Longview Energy Co. is represented by Gardere litigation attorneys Craig B. Florence, Randy D. Gordon and Rachel Kingrey.

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".
