Texas Mutual Insurance Co. v. Mendez
The court found that sufficient evidence existed that, despite the presence of marijuana metabolites in the deceased worker's blood, he was not intoxicated at the time of death and, therefore, death benefits were owed to his mother. The court, however, remanded the issue of the trial court's award of attorneys' fees.
