Entergy has dropped its third-party claim in a suit filed against a once prestigious but now defunct Austin law firm.

In a complaint filed June 7 in Jefferson County District Court, Wells Fargo Equipment Finance, Presidio Technology Capital and Heartland Business Credit claim they allowed the firm Clark, Thomas and Winters to lease computers and electronics from them under three different lease agreements, but the firm failed to pay them more than $1 million for the leases.

In order to recover the full balance of any property held for CT&W, the plaintiffs named Entergy Texas as a defendant.

Entergy responded by filing a counterclaim, court records show.

However, on Nov. 2 Entergy filed a motion for non-suit, asserting that all the parties involved had resolved the dispute.

Court records show that Judge Bob Wortham, 58th District Court, granted the motion on Nov. 14.

The plaintiffs are represented by Larry Chek and Robert K. Mitchell of Palmer and Manuel in Dallas.

Beaumont attorney Paul Scheurich represents Entergy.

Case No. A190-224
