Opinions, Jan. 25, 2017: Bill of Review

The First District Court of Appeals released its memorandum opinion in Chisti v. Wilwerding, No 01-16-00408-CV, affirming the trial court’s denial of a bill of review.

Samsher Chisti filed a bill of review requesting the trial court (the 257th in Harris County) set aside the divorce decree entered in his divorce from Kiran Wilwerding. Evidently representing himself at the hearing on the bill of review, Chisti alleged that the decree was fraudulently obtained because, according to him, Wilwerding committed bigamy without informing the trial court. The trial court denied the bill of review, Chisti appealed. The Court of Appeals held that Chisti proffered no evidence in trial court to support his allegations and affirmed the trial court.
