Thompson & Horton withdraws from lawsuit

Thompson & Horton LLP has informed the district of their desire to withdraw as counsel in Elizondo v. SBISD, the district revealed in an update to its website this morning.

Thompson & Horton has represented SBISD on a broad range of matters since at least 2008.

Todays announcement seems limited in scope, with Thompson & Horton only removing itself from involvement in the Elizondo lawsuit, which is led by former SBEF Chairman Barry Abrams.

The entire update from SBISD reads:

On December 3, 2021, Thompson & Horton informed the Spring Branch ISD Board of Trustees of their desire to withdraw as counsel in Elizondo v. SBISD. Thompson & Horton believes this request is in the district’s best interests. The firm also believes the issues surrounding this lawsuit are very important and should be the focus of the community rather than who is legal counsel. SBISD is grateful to Thompson & Horton for their legal representation and their integrity in ensuring SBISD’s interests are best represented.

Neither the district website nor court filings indicate which firm will represent SBISD on this matter going forward. We will continue to update you on the district's representation (and the lawsuit generally) as more information becomes available.
