Kasowitz Obtains Summary Judgment for Celanese in Critical Declaratory Judgment Action

Texas Judge Patricia J. Kerrigan of the District Court of Harris County, Texas awarded Kasowitz client, Celanese, LTD., a large manufacturer of commodity chemicals, summary judgment in a declaratory judgment action brought by Southern Methanol Corporation, a supplier of methanol -- a key raw material necessary to the manufacture of numerous Celanese products.  The lawsuit sought a declaration that Southern Methodist had certain rights to terminate a long-term methanol supply agreement with Celanese.  Kasowitz partner Hector Torres represented Celanese in this matter.
