Joy Lynn Tipping v. Art by Ancizar, Inc., et al.
Jason Irvin and Matt Sapp secured a dismissal with prejudice in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas for HPTY’s client, a small business owner. The case involved defamation, assault, negligence, and intentional infliction of emotional distress claims stemming from an altercation at a local arts festival. HPTY took an aggressive position, removing the case to federal court and immediately moving for dismissal. This strategy allowed HPTY to obtain a quick resolution of the case, saving HPTY’s client the costs and fees associated with conducting discovery and taking depositions.
