Fortis Benefits vs Vanessa Cantu and Ford Motor Co.

On Friday, December 8, 2006, TTLA through the Amicus Committee filed a brief in Fortis Benefits v. Cantu, in which the Texas Supreme Court is examining the "made whole" doctrine. Many thanks and plaudits to member Brent Rosenthal, who, on your behalf, did a tremendous job on the brief.

The brief is not, nor is it intended to be, an encyclopedic analysis of the doctrine, useful whenever the issue rears its ugly head. Rather, it is tailored to specifically address the concerns raised by the Court during oral argument.
