Relating to the rule of decision in a court of this state.
The Legislative Budget Board does not anticipate any significant fiscal impact to the state.
HB 2757 would provide that for any action governed by the laws of this state
concerning rights and obligations under the law, the American Law
Institute’s Restatements of the Law are not controlling.
Texas Action supports HB 2757 as it advances the principle of individual liberty. This bill would prevent misuse of the American Law Institute's Restatements in state courts by establishing that such Restatements are not controlling in any action governed by state law. These Restatements are not binding authority and should be used only as a secondary authority when the court finds it necessary.
