 Texas Lawyer - Dallas Area Rapid Transit v. Edwards
In its plea to the jurisdiction, DART argued the evidence showed that Williams, not Gary, was in control of the bus when the accident occurred and, therefore, any damage suffered by the Edwardses could not have been caused by the alleged negligence of its employee.
DART contended that, under the Tort Claims Act, there was no waiver of sovereign immunity when a third-party, who is not an employee, uses one of its vehicles to cause property damage.
DART argues the undisputed affidavits it submitted in support of its plea to the jurisdiction negated jurisdiction by showing that a third-party was in control of the bus at the time of the accident rather than its employee.

 Texas Lawyer - Dallas Area Rapid Transit v. Willis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
In its sole issue on appeal, DART contends that the trial court erred in denying its plea to the jurisdiction because Willis failed to plead a cause of action within an exception to governmental immunity under the Texas Tort Claims Act.
She asserted that DART was not entitled to governmental immunity because her cause of action fell within an exception under the Texas Tort Claims Act since her injury was caused by the bus driver's negligent use of motor-driven equipment.
DART argues that Willis did not allege a "use" of the bus and that if the bus was involved in the accident, it did nothing more than furnish the condition that made Willis's injury possible.

Their light rail system, Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART), has been up and running for several years and extensions are being planned.
One point that Dallas planners have made is that the first leg of the light rail went to the lower income section of Dallas, connecting these neighborhoods with jobs and shopping.
Some of the success of this program was a result of the anti-sprawl movement, but most was related to the hard work of the community and the willingness of Sunnen to donate right of way and tear down buildings in the way of the system.
