Enterprise Products Partners, L.P. et al v. Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. et al reversed one of the largest jury verdicts in Texas history. You will like this decision if:
- You believe a party has the right to rely on the sanctity of a written contract.
- You believe that it is proper for a court to be guided by “law and equity”.
You will not like it if:
- You favor “partnership by ambush”, as one of Enterprise’s lawyers put it.
- You regret that pesky pleading rules and required jury findings take the “Wild West” out of jury trials.
