KoonsFuller Attorney Argues Rare Property Case Before Supreme Court04/12/2011
Family law cases rarely make their way to the Texas Supreme Court, but Rebecca Tillery, a Dallas-based attorney with KoonsFuller,PC, recently argued the case of Milner v. Milner (Cause No. 10-0776).
This appeal is a contest over property division. The main issues are
- Whether a mediated settlement conveyed the husband’s partnership in companies or just assigned rights in his interests;
- Whether contract law requirements – particularly a meeting of the minds – applies to enforcing a mediated settlement agreement, and;
- Whether the divorce decree altered the settlement agreement by allegedly omitting substantive terms and conditions of the settlement.
Representing the petitioner was Jeff Kobs of Fort Worth. Rebecca Tillery represented the respondent. To view a video of the argument, click here.
