• COURT OF APPEALS OF TEXAS EIGHTH DISTRICT EL PASO
  • GUADALUPE RIVERA
The appellant challenges the trial court's finding of breach of contract in this case involving an attorney's hiring of a translator. When an attorney contracts third-party services on behalf of a client without specifying his agency status, the attorney may assume special liability for payment of the services. Absent an express disclosure of the attorney's agency status at the time the contract with the translator was formed, the evidence supports an implied finding that the appellant expressly or impliedly assumed special liability and is responsible for payment of the contract. The trial court's judgment is affirmed. El Paso Court of Appeals, No. 08-12-00067-CV, 04-11-2014
