In her highest profile case, Kendal prevailed with Partners Joel Reese and Brad Gordon in a highly publicized lawsuit filed by T. Boone Pickens and Cowboy Athletics, Inc. against an insurance agent over the “Gift of a Lifetime” program. Representing the insurance agent, Kendal worked with the trial team to help successfully procure summary judgment on various contract, negligence, and fraud-based claims for which Mr. Pickens and Cowboy Athletics sought more than $33 million in damages.
By way of both written briefing and oral argument, Kendal led the appeal and successfully preserved the trial team’s summary judgment when Mr. Pickens and Cowboy Athletics sought review and reversal in the United States Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.
