Understanding the evolving terrain of Direct Written Questions (DWQ) in Texas’s legal framework is crucial, especially for law firms, attorneys, paralegals, insurance companies, adjusters, and underwriters. The year 2021 brought noteworthy adjustments that every legal professional in Texas should be aware of.
A Landmark Case: McPheeters v. Tippett
A significant pivot point for these changes was the Supreme Court’s decision in the McPheeters v. Tippett personal injury case. The core contention revolved around the trial court’s decision to squash the defendants’ discovery plea related to the plaintiff’s medical providers’ negotiated rates and associated costs. The Supreme Court deduced that not only was the discovery relevant, but the trial court also failed to gauge whether a protective order might shield any confidential information or trade secrets from unnecessary exposure.
