A while back I posted a blog about sovereign immunity and public schools. The reason being, because we have people call our office all the time when their child is hurt at school seeing what can be done about it. I am constantly having to explain to parents that despite a teacher or faculty member's negligence, there is little that can be done against the school because of immunity. One of the two exceptions to sovereign immunity, injuries caused by a motor vehicle owned and operated by the school, can be illustrated below. In this instance, if the bus driver was found to be liable for the student's injuries, the students could recover against the school without a fear of the school being immune under The Texas Torts Claim Act.
