HOUSTON - A trial court correctly found that a damages expert's valuation of an energy company was unreliable and should not have been heard by a jury considering a partnership dispute, but the court erred in granting the defendants judgment notwithstanding the verdict (JNOV) on the $1.98 million verdict because there was some evidence of damages, a First District Texas Court of Appeals panel held Oct. 3 (Javier A. Vega v. Fulcrum Energy, et al., No. 01-12-00134-CV, Texas App., 1st Dist.; 2013 Tex. App. LEXIS 12323).
