Fredericksburg Indus., Inc. v. Franklin Int’l, Inc – Case Brief Summary (Texas)

In Fredericksburg Indus., Inc. v. Franklin Int'l, Inc., 911 S.W.2d 518, 520 (Tex. App.-San Antonio 1995, writ denied), the president/employee of a furniture manufacturing corporation sued a corporate supplier, asserting he lost wages as a result of the supplier's delivering defective glue.

The court held he lacked standing: the cause of action belonged to the corporation alone, as the damages were to the corporation's profits, and any claim the plaintiff had for lost wages was against the corporation. Id. at 521.
