Curnutt & Hafer Wins Appeal for Oil and Gas Client



This week the 10th Court of Appeals issued a unanimous opinion for the firm’s client, Devon Energy, reversing a trial court order and rendering a take nothing judgment for the client.  Kelly Curnutt and Adam Alexander successfully argued for the firm that the trial court abused its discretion by entering a permanent injunction requiring Devon Energy to secure entry to the disputed property against criminal acts of unknown third parties.  The Court of Appeals ultimately ruled in favor of the firm’s client, holding that the evidence presented at trial was not sufficient to support a permanent injunction against the company.
