San Antonio River Authority v. Austin Bridge and Road, L.P. and Hayward Baker, Inc.
As second chair at oral argument, Randall helped secure a victory for Appellee, Hayward Baker, Inc., before the Fourth Court of Appeals. The dispute focused on whether or not the Appellant, San Antonio River Authority, could be required to pay contractual damages. The River Authority asserted sovereign immunity and contested its ability to agree to binding arbitration. The Court held that the Legislature waived sovereign immunity in this instance, and the Court further held that the River Authority was not prohibited from engaging in binding arbitration. The Court remanded the case with instructions to enter an order compelling arbitration.
