law-affidavit-sufficiency-as-to-facts

The remainder of Brown's claims and statements pertaining to the use of confidential information in the divorce
proceedings are too general and conclusory in nature to support a claim of breach of fiduciary duty.  See
Brownlee v. Brownlee, 665 S.W.2d 111, 112 (Tex. 1984) (holding statements in affidavit were insufficient to raise
fact issue and “should have gone further and specified factual matters such as the time, place, and exact nature
of the alleged [occurrence]"); Wright v. Greenberg, 2 S.W.3d 666, 675 (Tex. App.-Houston [14th Dist.] 1999, pet.
denied) (holding statements in affidavit were insufficient to raise fact issue as they consisted of “conclusory
statements . . . in general terms").
