Carty v. Texas Dep't of Public Safety, No. 12-40750 (5th Cir. 2013)Annotate this Case
Plaintiff, on behalf of herself and others, filed suit against several governmental and private parties after her husband died in a training accident at the Texas Department of Public Safety Training Academy. Because this case involved important and determinative questions of Texas law as to which there was no controlling Texas precedent, the court certified questions to the Supreme Court of Texas regarding the receipt of benefits under Texas Labor Code 417.002.
The court issued a subsequent related opinion or order on July 1, 2014.
