Troice v. Greenberg Traurig L.L.P.

(United States Fifth Circuit) – Held that investors could not proceed with a lawsuit accusing an attorney of being complicit in a client’s Ponzi scheme. The attorney had immunity because, under Texas law, a non-client is not allowed to sue an attorney for conduct that occurred within the scope of the attorney’s representation of a client. Affirmed a judgment on the pleadings in favor of the law firm.
