Comments from Kel Seliger

"The American Law Institute's latest Restatement of Torts appears to indicate that there should be a broader liability for landowners in the case of trespassers on their property. Senate Bill 1160 codifies the current common law practice in Texas that a landowner has no liability to uninvited or unwelcome trespassers, with the limited exceptions of true negligence."
