The question whether testimony is “conclusory” arises frequently in commercial litigation, particularly when the testimony is presented by affidavit. While the boundary lines are not always clear, one definite data point for practitioners was provided by Chloe’s Concepts, LLC v. Clear Rainbow, Inc., which held in a default-judgment case: “Appellants complain that the affidavit of Clear Rainbow’s president does not state when default occurred but merely concludes the past due amount was $128,259.86 and that prejudgment interest was $11,069.00. However, ‘[t]estimony of the total amount due under a written instrument is legally sufficient to support an award of that amount in a default judgment proceeding.’” No. 05-20-00484-CV (Dec. 20, 2021) (mem. op.) (citation omitted).
