Appeals Court Reverses Ruling That Court Had No Jurisdiction Over Engineer

(March 8, 2016, 1:14 PM EST) -- WACO, Texas — A Texas Court of Appeals panel on March 3 reversed a trial court’s decision that it has no jurisdiction over a construction company’s third-party complaint against an out-of-state engineer hired to help repair a building’s construction defects, holding that the engineer had sufficient contacts with the state to warrant the court’s jurisdiction (Ryan Companies U.S., Inc., d/b/a Ryan Midwest Construction Company v. Thomas E. Notch, d/b/a Notch Engineering Company, No. 10-15-00337-CV, Texas App, 10th Dist.; 2016 Texas App. LEXIS 2327).
