Mills v. Fletcher
TTLA, through your Amicus Committee, has filed an amicus brief in Mills v. Fletcher, in the San Antonio Court of Appeals, cause no. 04-06-00345-CV. In that case, the appellant is contending that under 41.0105, the plaintiff is not entitled to recover for medical expenses that have been written-off or -down. Again, many thanks to Jim Perdue and Kirk Pittard for their substantive work on the brief.
The plaintiff-appellee, Kevin Fletcher, is represented by John Tyler and Craig Bettis of Tyler & Peery, in San Antonio.
Oral argument is set for February 7, in front of Justices Stone, Angelini, and Hilbig. The consensus is that that is about as favorable a panel as we could hope for in that court.
Again, I caution that the brief is not a compendium of all possible arguments that can be made on the issue--it was designed to complement, rather than replace, the appellee's brief.
