Dallas Court of Appeals cases for the week of October 3, 2011

For the week of October 3, 2011, the Dallas Court of Appeals issued three opinions in civil cases.  One of these disposes of a case without a detailed discussion of the merits (e.g., dismissing a case for want of prosecution, dismissing a case for mootness, dismissing a case pursuant to settlement).  The remaining two cases are as follows:

In re Stokely (05-10-01660-CV) – Recites well-established (1) standard for reviewing trial court’s ruling on whether to dissolve an injunction; and (2) rule that findings of fact and conclusions of law are not appropriate when a court rules on a motion without hearing any evidence.

Strong v. Strong (05-09-01273-CV) – Recites well-established (1) standard for reviewing trial court’s denial of motion for continuance; (2) standard for reviewing trial court’s admission and exclusion of evidence; (3) standard for reviewing trial court’s decision regarding child custody, control, possession, and visitation; and (4) standard for reviewing trial court’s denial of motion for new trial.
