New Law Permits Attorney Fees Against the State

In its most recent session, the Texas Legislature amended Texas Government Code § 2260.003 to permit recovery of attorney's fees against the State for claims conducted through the State Office of Administrative Hearings if:

(1) the claim is for breach of a written contract for engineering, architectural, or construction services (or materials related to those services); and

(2) the amount in controversy is less than $250,000, excluding penalties, costs, expenses, prejudgment interest, and attorney's fees.
