Texas Supreme Court will take up Cameron Redus lawsuit again
Nearly six years after Cameron Redus was fatally shot by a University of Incarnate Word police officer, the wrongful death lawsuit filed by his family remains tied up in the court system. A spokesperson of the Redus family confirmed that the Texas Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in December over whether UIW should be granted immunity from the lawsuit, a disputed point that has kept the lawsuit from moving forward. "Cruel to the Redus (family) hardly captures the reality of this situation." An appeals court sided with the Redus family and determined the private university is not granted immunity in the case, but the university's attorneys were granted another appeal from the Texas Supreme Court in 2017. The 4th Court of Appeals ruled in the family's favor in 2018, and now the Texas Supreme Court will decide on the immunity claim after oral arguments are heard Dec. 4.
