Sandt v. Energy Maintenance Services Group I, LLC
Citation:534 S.W.3d 626 (Tex. App. 2017)
Jim Sandt was a former officer and shareholder of Energy Maintenance Services Group I, LLC. Timothy Nesler was the chief executive officer of Energy Maintenance. In 2005, Sandt sued Energy Maintenance and Nesler, alleging that they wrongfully had diluted Sandt’s ownership interest in Energy Maintenance, committing fraud and breach of fiduciary duty. The Sandt lawsuit went to trial about two years after the board had agreed to indemnify Nesler. Energy Maintenance contended that the jury’s finding of fraud and breach of fiduciary duty against Nesler alleviated the company’s indemnification obligation.
