The Fifth Court granted mandamus relief as to the denial of a responsible third party designation, summarizing the record as follows: “Based on the evidence produced by relators, a jury could infer that Stephens modified and used Del Rio’s scaffolding solely because Electro Acoustics failed to provide him with the necessary equipment to safely perform his work. Accordingly, a jury could conclude Electro Acoustics’s omission was a substantial factor in bringing about Stephens’s injuries. Furthermore, a jury could reasonably conclude that a person of ordinary intelligence could appreciate the danger of requiring an employee to work in high spaces without providing the equipment required to reach and work in the area safely.”  in re Kilmer, No. No. 05-20-00814-CV (April 7, 2021) (mem. op.) (applying Advance Tire & Wheel v. Enshikar, 527 S.W.3d 476, 480 (Tex. App.–Houston [1st Dist.] 2017, no pet.).
