To the right, Mother Hubbard plays well with her dog, but in Eagle Remodel LLC v. Capital Financial Corp., Mother Hubbard did not play well with a summary-judgment order: “Appellant asserts in a letter brief filed at our direction that the order is appealable because appellee did not file a counterclaim for fees and the order included a ‘Mother Hubbard’ clause stating that ‘All relief not expressly granted herein is denied.’ As appellee notes in its response, however, a ‘Mother Hubbard’ clause is not indicative of finality when, as here, a conventional trial on the merits was not held.” No. 05-21-00625-CV (Jan. 5, 2022) (mem. op.) (applying Lehmann v. Har-Con Corp., 39 S.W.3d 191 (Tex. 2001)).
