Governor's Veto of SB 2141 No Longer an Issue
This morning, the Texas Supreme Court overturned a ruling by a San Antonio appellate court that weakened the Statute of Repose. During the legislative session, TSA and CEC worked to get the legislature to pass SB 2141, which would have precluded plaintiffs from designating architects and engineers as 3rd party defendants after the 10-year statute of repose has expired. Although the bill was passed, it was vetoed by the Governor. The Supreme Court’s action today means the Governor's veto is no longer an issue!
