After a jury found that two San Antonio lawyers defrauded a clientand wrongfully took her money, a Bexar County trial court judge signed a final order allowing the plaintiff a highly unusual remedy: a constructive trust on a defendant’s Interest on Lawyers’ Trust Account (IOLTA).

On Jan. 4, 408th District Judge Larry Noll signed the final order in Isabel Sloan v. Law Office of Oscar C. Gonzalez, et al., which awarded plaintiff Isabel Sloan more than $400,000 in damages and found that Sloan had “established the right to the remedy of a constructive trust.” Noll’s order allows Sloan to trace property related to the litigation to the IOLTA bank accountbelonging to defendant San Antonio attorney Oscar C. Gonzalez and/or his law office.
