Gardere Attorneys File Amicus Brief on Behalf of Electric Providers


Energy Choice Matters, a national trade publication for the competitive electricity industry, published an article quoting significant excerpts from an amicus filing of an industry coalition. Gardere Attorneys Catherine J. Webking and Andres S. Medrano served as lead counsel on behalf of the Firm's client TEAM, a trade organization of retail electric providers, and a coalition of other Texas retailers including NRG Retail and TXU Energy.

Ms. Webking and Mr. Medrano prepared and filed the amicus brief in response to an administrative order that made a number of incorrect conclusions regarding the responsibility of retailers to disclose third-party utility fees to their customers. If the order's conclusions were adopted by the Commission, the competitive market structure and recovery of regulated utility fees would be severely disrupted.

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.
