Litchfield Cavo Attorneys Obtain Summary Judgment for Trucking Client

On August 26, 2015, the Honorable Judge Carolyn Baker granted Truck Nation Transport, LLC’s motion for summary judgment. Judge Baker presides over the 295th Judicial District Court, Harris County, Texas. She entered an order that plaintiff take nothing by his claims against Truck Nation Transport.

Truck Nation Transport is a domestic transportation company. Plaintiff was an independent contractor driver employed by Truck Nation Transport, who alleged that he was injured while in the course of his employment. Plaintiff sought to recover $1.2 million in damages from Truck Nation Transport and another defendant. Approximately thirty minutes after the second round of mediation failed to settle the case, Judge Baker granted Truck Nation Transport, LLC’s motion. The remaining defendant settled a week later.

Truck Nation Transport was represented by Tory Taylor and Armando Chiu in Litchfield Cavo LLP’s Houston office.
