Texas Statute of Limitations for Fraudulent Inducement of a Contract

May 28, 2015

Is there a time limit within which one must file a lawsuit if he enter into a contract based upon another person’s intentional misrepresentations?

Generally, under Texas law, a person who wants to get out of a contract because he entered into it based upon the intentional misrepresentations (fraud) of someone else must file suit within four years of when he discovered, or should have discovered, the fraud. See Tex. Civ. Prac. & Rem. Code § 16.004(a)(4); see also Hooks v. Samson Lone Star, Ltd. Partnership, 58 Tex. Sup. J. 252 (Tex. 2015).
