We represented Unocal Corporation in an action brought by Bridas Corporation alleging tortious interference with Bridas’s alleged agreements with the governments of Turkmenistan and Afghanistan to build a natural gas pipeline from Turkmenistan to Afghanistan across Pakistan. We successfully obtained summary judgment for Unocal. The summary judgment was affirmed by the Fourteenth Court of Appeals in Houston. We then successfully obtained an antisuit injunction prohibiting Bridas from bringing its threatened action in the Sharia courts of Afghanistan.
Affirmed by the Fourteenth Court of Appeals at Bridas Corp. v. Unocal Corp., 16 S.W.3d 893 (Tex. App.—Houston [14th Dist.] 2000, pet. denied).
Antisuit injunction also affirmed at Bridas Corp. v. Unocal Corp., 16 S.W.3d 887 (Tex. App.—Houston [14th Dist.] 2000, pet. dism’d w.o.j.).
