Airborne Freight Corp. v. C. R. Lee Enters., Inc
In Airborne Freight Corp. v. C. R. Lee Enters., Inc., 847 S.W.2d 289, 298 (Tex. App.-El Paso 1992, writ denied), Airborne's agent stated to an employee, "as long as you do your job, you'll have a job." Id. at 292.
When Airborne later invoked a termination clause under a contract, the employee sued for breach of contract, oral fraud, and negligent misrepresentation. Id.
As to the negligent misrepresentation claim, our sister court found that the above language "is simply not the sort of assertion which will support a misrepresentation verdict . . . appellee needed to show that Airborne misrepresented an existing fact, not a promise of future conduct." Id. at 298.
