Houston litigation funder Virage Master won a $6.04 million judgment against trial lawyer B. Gregg Price after Price’s defense lawyer received conflicting information about court hearings at a time when COVID-19 stay-home orders were coming out. Now, the suit is raising questions about how government orders related to court operations, issued as governors asked people to shelter in place, affected litigation.

Series 1—Virage Master had sued Price in 2019, alleging he failed to pay a $3.25 million loan in 2015. The final summary judgment that 215th District Judge Elaine Palmer signed on April 2 ordered Price, individually and through his firm, to pay Virage $6.04 million in unpaid principal and interest, and $16,295 in attorney fees.
