“’When a trial court’s order does not specify the grounds for its summary judgment, an appellate court must affirm the summary judgment if any of the theories presented to the trial court and preserved for appellate review are meritorious.’ However, when the trial court’s summary judgment order does
specify a ground on which it was granted, we generally limit our review to that ground.
Here, because the trial court’s summary judgment order specified the ground
on which it was granted—that Finley was a released party because the term
‘predecessor’ in the Release includes an entity that was a ‘predecessor in title’ to
the subject property interest—we will limit our review to that theory.” Headington Royalty v. Finley Resources, No. 05-19-00291-CV (March 18, 2021) (citations omitted) (emphasis added).
