Greyhound drops appeal of $780K exemplary award
At the request of Greyhound Lines, the Texas Ninth Court of appeals on Thursday granted a motion to dismiss appeal.
Court records show Caitlin and Jennifer Hassler filed a personal injury suit against Greyhound and two individuals in Montgomery County District Court.
The case went to trial in March. A final judgment was entered April 8, awarding the plaintiffs $780,000 in exemplary damages.
Greyhound appealed the judgment on July 9, court records show.
On Dec. 4 Greyhound and fellow defendant Paul Flueckiger filed an unopposed motion to dismiss appeal with prejudice, stating the parties had reached a settlement.
A month later, Ninth Court justices granted the motion, issuing a memorandum opinion on Jan. 15.
Greyhound is represented in part by Brent Cooper and Diana Faust, attorneys for the Dallas law firm Cooper & Scully.
The case was tried in Judge Cara Wood’s 284th District Court.
