March 2, 2022 in Case Summaries

In a long-running and procedurally-complex child custody dispute between two physicians, Levinger PC successfully represented the father in persuading the Dallas Court of Appeals to uphold the trial court’s order refusing to modify the parent-child relationship.  The Court first rejected the mother’s contention that the parties had not agreed to arbitrate their dispute, holding that a 2010 order included a consensual arbitration clause and a 2012 order did not revoke that agreement.  The Court also rejected the mother’s procedural challenges to the award, including her attack on the arbitrator’s decision concerning her effort to present testimony from out-of-state witnesses.  In the Interest of K.B., No. 05-20-00123-CV, 2022 WL 611208 (Tex. App.—Dallas Mar. 2, 2022, no pet.) (mem. op.).
