In this informative CLE program, we will examine core concepts and key elements of the independent-contractor defense found in Chapter 95 of the Texas Civil Practices & Remedies Code. This statue offers enhanced protections for the owners of commercial property damage that the contractors sustained while working on the owner's premises. We will also discuss recent developments in Chapter 95 jurisprudence, including, but not limited to the Texas Supreme Court's recent decisions in Abutahoun v. The Dow Chemical Co. and Elmgren v. INEOS. This course features streaming video and audio (as well as downloadable MP3 audio) presentations from a live CLE seminar by the Houston Bar Association (HBA) on April 7, 2017.
