Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code
Sec. § 147.042


Except as provided by Subsection (b), a claimant must commence an action against a manufacturer or seller of a computer product or computer service product before the end of 15 years after the date of the sale by the defendant. If the computer product which caused the computer date failure is a component of another product and if the product and computer product were sold at different times, the 15-year period begins to run on the date the defendant sold the computer product.


If a manufacturer or seller expressly represented that the computer product or computer service product would not manifest the computer date failure, this section does not apply.


This section does not reduce a limitations period that applies to an action that accrues before the end of the limitations period under this section.


This section does not extend the limitations period within which an action may be commenced under any other law.
