STATE OF TEXAS v. GONZALEZ, 00-1007
A stop sign's susceptibility to repeated vandalism is not a "condition" under Texas Tort Claims Act section 101.060(a)(2) for purposes of determining the state's liability, and where the state had no notice that stop signs were down before an accident occurred, the Act does not waive the state's immunity to a personal injury suit.
