The case of the day is Nicholas v. Environmental Systems (International) Ltd. (Tex. Ct. App. 2016). In a Canadian copyright infringement lawsuit brought by Frederick Nicholas against Environmental Systems, Brian G. Cook, Reif Winery Inc., Klaus Reif, and Re/Defining Water Inc., the court awarded costs and attorney’s fees to the defendants. Environmental Systems and the other defendants in the Canadian action then sought recognition and enforcement of the Canadian judgment in Texas. Nicholas argued that the Canadian judgment was not properly authenticated. The Texas court held a trial and entered a judgment recognizing the Canadian judgment, and Nicholas appealed.
