“‘”Breach’” of a contract occurs when a party fails to perform an act that it has contractually promised to perform.’ Under terms of the agreement, Hinojosa merely agreed to allow the first $258,996.16 in proceeds from the sale to go to LaFredo with any remaining proceeds to be split between them. LaFredo does not identify any action taken by Hinojosa that precluded him from receiving any of the proceeds from the sale. To the contrary, the record before us suggests LaFredo received all the available proceeds, used a portion to pay for the Canton Street condominium, and signed a settlement statement reflecting his agreement to this disbursement. That LaFredo spent a portion of the proceeds to purchase the Canton Street condominium is not evidence, much less conclusive evidence, that Hinojosa breached the One Arts Plaza Agreement. Based on the record before us, we conclude LaFredo has not conclusively shown, as he must, that Hinojosa breached the One Arts Plaza Agreement.” Hinojosa v. LaFredo, No. 05-20-00166-CV (Sept. 20, 2021) (emphasis added).
