On July 20, 2017, Kristen Lindsey and her attorney Brian W. Bishop headed back to court to dispute the Texas State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners’ (the “Board”) Final Decision and Order signed and entered on October 20, 2016.
Facebook: Tiger’s Justice Team News posted the update August 4
“Plaintiff appeared through her attorney of record, Brian W. Bishop, and announced ready. Defendant, the Texas State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners (Board) appeared through its attorney of record, Assistant Attorney General Ted A. Ross, Office of the Attorney General, and announced ready.
After considering the pleading and the administrative record, the parties’ briefing, the arguments of counsel, and applicable law, the Court is of the opinion that the Final Order should be and is hereby AFFIRMED. IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED, JUDGED, AND DECREED that the Texas State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners Final Decision and Order signed and entered on October 20, 2016, is AFFIRMED in all respects.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED, JUDGED, AND DECREED that all claims for relief not expressly addressed herein are DENIED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED, JUDGED, AND DECREED that Plaintiff shall bear all costs in this proceeding.
This Final Judgment disposes of all parties and all claims pending before the Court and is a final and appealable judgment.
Signed this 25th day of July 2017.
In simple language, Lindsey lost, she’s responsible for the court costs and Bishop has already filed an appeal in the Texas 3rd Court of Appeals with Case Number 03-17-00513-CV. KL or her parents are forking out a fortune on costs on this case. And the appeal has to be questionable because it is likely to fail and it simply puts the matter before the public again.
Not only does Lindsey feel she’s done nothing wrong (click here for PoC article) by killing Tiger, she also doesn’t comprehend this case achieved global attention. It’s highly unlikely a veterinary clinic would hire her on and with the court costs falling on her shoulders, Lindsey may be financially unstable for years.
