The main issue presented by this appeal is whether Â§ 70.301 of the Texas Property Code requires a mechanic to obtain the consent of an aircrafts owner to perform work before the mechanic can secure a lien on the aircraft. Astraea Aviation Services, Inc. d/b/a Dalfort Aviation ("Dalfort")--a company that provides aircraft maintenance and repair services--asserted a lien on an aircraft and brought a foreclosure suit against the owner of the aircraft. Dalfort now appeals from a judgment denying the existence of a lien. Dalfort also appeals the decision to assess attorneys fees against, rather than in favor of, Dalfort under Tex. Prop. Code Ann. Â§ 70.306 (West 1995). The owner of an aircraft serviced by Dalfort, 9 Lives Holding, Inc. ("9 Lives"), cross-appeals the magistrate Judges denial of recovery on two of 9 Lives counterclaims. We conclude that the magistrate Judge correctly interpreted Â§ 70.301 to require an owners consent, and we also agree that the Judge granted appropriate relief to 9 Lives on its counterclaims. We therefore affirm the judgment in all respects.
