Hats off to Eric Peabody and David Plaut for their recent win in the Amarillo Court of Appeals in Cause No. 07-20-00300-CV, Ferrer v. Almanza (March 16, 2021). The appeal involved a statute of limitations issue and a summary judgment order dismissing the plaintiff’s claims against a defendant in a motor vehicle accident case. The Amarillo Court held CPRC § 16.063 – which tolls the running of limitations for persons “absent” from the state – did not toll limitations as the defendant who was out of state for college was still amenable to service of process as a Texas resident.
