Mandamus Review of New-Trial Orders

Posted byScott Stolley, Thompson & Knight   I was privileged to represent Toyota in a case that broke new ground on mandamus law. In re Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc., 407 S.W.3d 746 (Tex. 2013) (orig. proceeding). In that case, the Supreme Court held that appellate courts can, in a mandamus proceeding, review the merits of an order granting a motion for new trial after a jury verdict.I was also recently privileged to give a presentation at the State Bar Advanced Personal Injury Law Course on this subject. Click here if you would like to read my CLE paper, which discusses issues and cases that have arisen out of the Toyota ruling. I will repeat this presentation at the Advanced Personal Injury Law Course on July 31 in San Antonio and on September 11 in Houston. I would be happy to try to answer your questions about this topic if you would like to call me (214-969-1678) or send an email(
