Berg & Androphy file motion to compel in response to alleged obstruction in suit over unpaid litigation loan

By John Suayan | Aug 15, 2017

HOUSTON – Houston law firm Berg & Androphy has filed a motion to compel into a 2016 lawsuit over an unpaid litigation loan, per recent Harris County District Court records.

The motion, submitted on Aug. 7, alleges that Virage Capital Partners had obstructed the plaintiff’s efforts to obtain evidence relevant to the suit, most notably testimony of another law firm purportedly defrauded by Virage and its co-defendants including Houston attorney Martin A. Shellist.

The 22-page document also faults the respondents for misleading the court in their answers to the plaintiff’s interrogatories on the issue of other law firms that have disputes or complaints about litigation funding, such as the Flint Law Firm.

According to the complaint, Berg & Androphy and other firms were the victims of “a classic bait-and-switch scheme.” It further claims defendant Affiliated Solutions, doing business as LitCap, refuse to comply with a court order issued by Harris County 295th District Court Judge Caroline Baker last May 25.

Attorneys George R. Gibson, Marvin D. Nathan, and A. Elizabeth Larson of the law firm Nathan Sommers Jacobs in Houston are representing the complainant.
