The peculiar treatment of attorneys’ fee awards against LLCs in contract cases, by the now-repealed version of CPRC § 38.001, led to the resolution of a novel issue in Benge General Contracting, LLC v. Hertz Elec., LLC: “Absent mandatory, or at least persuasive, authority applying the alter-ego theory to hold an LLC’s members liable for attorney’s fees that could not be incurred by the LLC, we must abide by the plain statutory language. Accordingly, we conclude that the trial court abused its discretion in awarding attorney’s fees, and we sustain appellants’ first issue.” No. 05-19-01506-CV (Sept. 7, 2021) (mem. op.).
