Nettles v. GTECH Corp., No. 17-1010, — S.W.3d —, 2020 WL 3116609 (Tex. June 12, 2020)

Nettles v. GTECH Corp., No. 17-1010, — S.W.3d —, 2020 WL 3116609 (Tex. June 12, 2020)

Reversing plea to the jurisdiction and affirming the denial of an identical plea in another case, filed by GTECH, a private contractor hired to provide instant ticket manufacturing and services to the Texas Lottery Commission.  Following its prior opinion in Brown & Gay Eng’g, Inc. v. Olivares, 461 S.W.3d 117 (Tex. 2015), the Court determined that because GTECH had discretion with regard to game design, and the Lottery Commission did not control the manner in which that work was performed, GTECH was not entitled to immunity.
