The Court vacated its earlier panel opinion in Sawyer v. du Pont, which rejected claims of fraudulent inducement by employees who the Court concluded were “at-will.” The issue of whether at-will employees can bring such claims (which here, also involves the application of a notice provision in the employees’ CBA with their employer), has now been certified to the Texas Supreme Court. No. 11-40454 (July 27, 2012). The Texas Lawyer Blog has some interesting insight on the procedural history of this ruling.
