Abstract

Focuses on the effects of the Carmack Amendment on recovery under the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act. The author contends that Congress should re-examine the amendment and revise it to reflect a reasonable balance between the business interests of interstate carriers and the recognized need to protect consumers from misrepresentation and deception.
