Rule 91a Motion to Dismiss Granted in Labor and Employment Case
Apr 13, 2022
Houston senior attorney Brittney Williams was granted a Rule 91a Motion to Dismiss and all of Plaintiff’s claims were dismissed in a labor and employment case. Rule 91a Motions to Dismiss are based on the pleadings, and are generally difficult to get granted.
Plaintiff filed a lawsuit against Brittney’s client alleging sexual harassment, dangerous work environment, and violations of break times. Brittney drafted a Rule 91a Motion to Dismiss arguing that Plaintiff’s claims have no basis in law or fact.
In granting the Rule 91a Motion to Dismiss, “the Court determine[d] that the Motion should be GRANTED for all causes of action in Plaintiff’s Original Petition.”
Past Rule 91a Wins
This is Brittney’s second Rule 91a Motion to Dismiss, and second win. In Brittney’s prior Rule 91a Motion to Dismiss, the Court granted a dismissal of all causes of action (Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress, Violations of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act, Negligence, and Respondent Superior).
