Settlement Achieved: Legal Action Concerning Houston Texans Owner’s Request for Guardianship Retracted

The owner of the Houston Texans has withdrawn a lawsuit, ending the attempt to name a guardian for him.

In November, Robert Carey McNair Jr. submitted an application to the probate court of Harris County, the home of Houston, to designate a guardian for his mother, Janice McNair, 87.

Attorneys for Carrie McNair and the other parties, however, filed a move on Monday proposing to mutually dismiss the lawsuit.

The case’s resolution was initially reported by The Houston Chronicle. The newspaper was informed by Carrie McNair’s lawyer, Jeremy Fielding, that the family has decided to discuss these issues in private.
Fielding refuted statements made by her brother Cal, stating that Carrie McNair’s main concern was her mother’s safety and that she filed the lawsuit for her protection.

Carrie McNair was previously sued by Janice McNair’s legal representatives, along with those of her son Cal McNair, the president and CEO of Texas Tech, for their mother’s purported incapacity or need for guardianship in order to manage her personal, financial, and medical affairs. There was a case filed in. had disputed the assertions of. Janice McNair became the Texans’ owner after her husband Robert “Bob” McNair passed away in 2018.

“Cal McNair is happy that his mother, Janice McNair, is no longer the target of the unjustified lawsuit. They are relieved that they won’t have to submit to pointless medical examinations or be subjected to a restrictive guardianship that would limit their freedom. In her capacity as the founding member and senior president of the Houston Texans, she will continue to play a significant role, according to Cal McNair’s attorney Paul Dobrowski.

The trial was decided to end in response to Judge Jerry Simoneau’s decision earlier this month that Janice McNair will not need to have her mental competency assessed by an outside party. This assessment was sought by Carrie McNair’s legal team, who claimed in court that her January 2022 stroke had compromised her capacity to do business.

The reasons behind the conservatorship effort’s specifics were mostly obscured because Simoneau had previously sealed some court documents.
