UPDATE ON PACE

BISD is claiming they called the parents. I am speaking to a parent as I type - she is calling BISD liar. Apparently, a child other than the one I am helping threw a tray of mash potatoes in the face of the coach. But I am also being told she did it after the coach grabbed the child I am trying to help.

I will be clear - BISD must have a zero tolerance for students assaulting teachers or staff or teachers or staff assaulting students. there will never be an excuse for a student throwing anything at a teacher or staff unless it is clearly in self defense.

I just wanted to update my readers. It is important for me that people know my issue is not the coach - I want my readers to know I have confirmation from BISD and a parent about the throwing incident so I feel safe in saving it happened. I am not defending the coach - I am just trying to make sure people know what was done to him by one of the students.

This has to do with a previous article. Have you confirmed if Ace did, in fact, remove John Barr as Cata's attorney?

Today I was told that Presas-Garcia is telling numerous people that ACE has raised concerns - the only three people who know the truth are Presas-Garcia, Barr and ACE - if something is filed in the case I am certain I will hear about it and let people know

So people know the law on the issue - she can keep Barr even if ACE drops him - she would then have to pay her own bill and sue ACE for reimbursement

What happens if ACE determines that they shouldn't pay for her legal defense? Can she still sue to recover attorney fees?

BobbyWC said...

yes, and a court will determine if there was a fact question of coverage - in Texas a legitimate fact question as to coverage mandates they pay for the defense while reserving teh right until judgment if they should have to pay the judgment

The problem she faces is, if John Barr refuses to represent her for free she is up a creek - no one in Brownsville is going to take her as a client contingent on a separate lawsuit against ACE to recover her attorneys fees.

I have no idea what is happening - all I know is several independent sources have told me she is telling me she has received bad news from ACE

I think there is about to be a blood bath - the sad part is after the blood path Ted Parker and John Barr will cut and run on her

It sounds like Mr. Barr would have to take a big gamble to represent her - contingent upon the fact that he would have to sue for his fees- especially if the Healthsmart lawsuit is .ot dropped.l
