Re: Civil Liability

ELB wrote: If you can't find justification for your action in Chp. 9, then Tex. Civ. Prac. & Rem. Code §83.001 does not apply. Thus, any injured or killed innocent 3rd parties can still sue. It doesn't mean they will win, but they can sue. Whether they prevail will be determined by whether or not your conduct was "negligent." Note, this is a lower standard than the "reckless" standard in the Penal Code.

It looks like to me that, in other words, the bad guys still win. What happened to the Texas that I grew up in? "He just needed killin' " used to be an honored defense. Really. Especially, if you found your husband in bed with another woman! ;-)
