Summary: A judge sanctioned prominent litigator Bill Brewer for $133,000. 

Well-known Dallas litigator Bill Brewer has been ordered to pay $133,000 by State District Judge Ruben Reyes for misconduct, The Dallas Morning News reports. The judge ruled last week that Brewer was “unprofessional” and “unethical” when he used polling techniques to allegedly influence potential jurors in West Texas.

Brewer represented Titeflex Corp. in a multimillionaire wrongful death and products liability case. Titeflex was sued by a Texas family that said the company’s steel pipes led to an explosion that killed their son, Brennen Teel.

Before the trial of Teel v. Titeflex, which was settled in 2014, Brewer hired a polling company to survey Lubbock, Texas, residents about issues in the trial, and Reyes said that the polls guided the residents to shift blame from Titeflex to the pipe installers or city employees.

Brewer denies any wrongdoing. In addition to the fine, he must also attend 10 hours of legal ethics courses.

Timothy T. Pridmore of McWhorter, Cobb & Johnson represented Brewer, who is a name partner of Brewer, Attorneys & Counselors, which was formerly called Bickel & Brewer. The Dallas Morning News says Bickel & Brewer was known in Texas as an aggressive legal firm.

If Brewer appeals and loses, the sanctions would increase to $173,000.
