- Priester v. JPMorgan Chase BankMs. Mosser represented two homeowners before the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in a dispute with lender JPMorgan Chase. The case focused on certain provisions in the Texas Constitution, specifically whether a bank lien on the homeowners’ property should have been considered void from inception, making it legally unenforceable, or if the lien was voidable after being signed. The position argued by Ms. Mosser was later upheld by the Texas Supreme Court in a separate case.
- VSC LLC v. City of DallasMs. Mosser represented a vehicle storage company before the Texas Supreme Court in a claim against the City of Dallas over the city’s’ seizure and sale of nearly 300 vehicles that were stored by the company after allegedly being stolen. The storage company claimed the seizure and sale amount to an unconstitutional taking since the company was not compensated for storage fees, while the city argued that the seizure was legal under police powers rather than the city’s power of imminent domain.
