Helena Chem. Co. v. Wilkins – Case Brief Summary (Texas)

In Helena Chem. Co. v. Wilkins, 47 S.W.3d 486, 503-04 (Tex. 2001), the Court found statements about sorghum seed to be actionable misrepresentations.

Summarizing the representations, the Court noted "the plaintiff's evidence reflects specific representations about the seed's characteristics and specific representations about how the plaintiff's crop in particular would perform." Id. at 503.

The Court concluded, "viewing the evidence in a light most favorable to the jury's findings, we conclude that there is some evidence of misrepresentations about the seed's characteristics, quality, and grade amounting to more than mere puffing." Id. at 504.
