Fulbright & Jaworski Fires Back, Sues to Get $521K Legal Payment from Plaintiff in Texas A&M Case

Firing back at an investor group that named Fulbright & Jaworski as a defendant in a Nevada lawsuit over a land acquisition by Texas A&M University, the law firm has sued the plaintiff over an allegedly unpaid $521,000 legal bill.

The law firm filed the Texas suit Monday in Bexar County District Court, the San Antonio Express-News reports.

Verano Land Group filed suit last week in Clark County, Nev., against the law firm and the developers overseeing the Texas A&M acquisition. A previous post details the underlying real estate dispute and earlier lawsuit.

“These businessmen should not think they can come to Texas, obtain help in establishing a highly successful development and then run back to Nevada and refuse to fully pay the people who made their project a success,” George Scofield told the newspaper. He is the partner who heads the Fulbright & Jaworski office in San Antonio.

Verano didn’t respond to an Express-News request for comment.
