This CLE program will be an update on hot topics in the Texas Citizen Participation Act, including how the appellate courts have been construing the TCPA’s text after the last few amendments to the TCPA and the areas of uncertainty that have not been decided by the Texas Supreme Court. There will be a discussion on how appellate courts have construed and applied Section 27.009(b), which allows a trial court to award fees to the responding party if a motion to dismiss is deemed to be “frivolous” or “solely intended to delay,” as well as the amendments to the TCPA that directly relate to Section 27.009(b). This CLE program features streaming video and downloadable audio presentations from a seminar by the Houston Bar Association (HBA) on March 8, 2024. Some of the subjects include:

  • How to Avoid TCPA Triggers in Your Client’s Filing

  • Proposed Changes to the Automatic Stay

  • Commercial-Speech Exemption

  • “Frivolous" or "Solely Intended to Delay"

  • 30-Day Deadline to Rule?

  • Sanctions Against Movant: Fees, Damages and Costs

  • Bonus: Prima Facie, Agents or “That Party” Standing
