  • Thompson v. Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, 58 Tex.Sup.Ct. J. 171 (2014)

    Practice Area:
    Administrative Law
    Date:
    Dec 19, 2014
    Outcome:
    Favorable for the client.
    Description:
    Thompson was denied a license to be a tow truck driver. I appealed to the District Court ( we won), the State appealed to the Court of Appeal (we lost), and I took the case to the Texas Supreme Court (we won). This case clarified and limited the ability for a State agency (here, TDLR) to revise/interpret the law. This should prevent outcome oriented deliberations by the agency in the future.
