All About Homes, LLC v. PHH Mortg. Corp., Civil Action 4:21-CV-03750, at *6 (S.D. Tex. Sep. 20, 2022)

“The Supreme Court of Texas has ‘never held corporations liable for each other’s obligations merely because of centralized control, mutual purposes, and shared finances.’”

Al Rushaid v. Nat’l Oilwell Varco, Inc., 757 F.3d 416, 424 (5th Cir. 2014) (quoting SSP Partners v. Gladstrong Invs. (USA) Corp., 275 S.W.3d 444, 451 (Tex. 2009)).

One purpose of creating separate corporate entities is to shield the assets of one from the liabilities of the other.

It would be perverse for All About Homes to avoid liability for All About Property’s obligations, yet also find that the two entities are sufficiently identical such that the latter can assert a claim on the former’s behalf.

And no allegations in the Complaint (or facts in the record) suggest that All About Property was positioned to assert the rights of All About Homes.

The two entities are not in privity with each other.”

Defendant Codilis is a foreclosure law firm that defendant Freedom Mortgage Corporation retained to advise and assist it regarding the foreclosure of the lien on the Property.
