Supreme Court Update: Agreement to Agree and Easement by Necessity

The Texas Supreme Court granted a baker’s dozen worth of petitions for review this morning, including two cases that first made their way through the Dallas Court of Appeals. In CTMI, LLC v. Fischer, the Court of Appeals held that the earn-out provision in an asset purchase agreement was unenforceable because it left the percentages to be used in calculating the earn-out subject to a future agreement. And in Staley Family Partnership v. Stiles, the Court of Appeals rejected an attempt to impose an easement by necessity because one of the two tracts of land was not being used at all when they were severed from each other in 1866.
