Reversed and Remanded and Majority and Dissenting Opinions filed June 10, 2008.

MAJORITY OPINION

In this legal-malpractice case, appellant, a law firm’s former client, challenges a no-evidence summary judgment in favor of the law firm and the lawyers that represented her in prior medical-malpractice litigation, alleging, among other things, inadequate time for discovery. We conclude that the trial court abused its discretion in determining that an adequate time for discovery had passed and therefore the trial court erred in granting the no-evidence summary judgment. We reverse and remand.
