Wenholz Law Firm Client Defeats Austin Energy's Plea to the Jurisdiction. By Luke Dow on April 19, 2018

On February 9, 2018, Travis County Judge, The Honorable Eric Shepperd ruled in favor of Wenholz Law Firm client Rosario Membreno by denying City of Austin d/b/a Austin Energy's Plea to the Jurisdiction in cause no. D-1-GN-15-004371; styled Membreno v. Romero et al. filed in the 98th Judicial District Court, Travis County, Texas.

Attorney Sean B. Swords of the Wenholz Law Firm persuaded the court that the issue of paternity in a wrongful death case is not a threshold question requiring a preliminary finding by the trier of fact. This ruling is consistent with decades old legal precedent and allows the minor son his day in court to recover for the wrongful electrocution death of his father on February 12, 2009 at the OK Corral Night Club in Austin
