Abstract

Analyzes the Texas Supreme court case of Robinson v. Central Texas MHMR Center. The case deals with the nonuse doctrine of waiver of governmental immunity in the Texas Tort Claims Act. The author concludes that while the Texas Supreme Court answered the question at hand the failure to provide an answer on pure nonuse will result in confusion in lower courts.
