Hello friend. My name is XXXXX XXXXX welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice, and, (2) there may be a slight

I am very sorry for your situation. I signed a release of liability for the agent. the agent had the car on consignment for sale. did this release of liability of the agent also release the principal of the fraud????????? R.L.Price
While releases are binding, they are not if the action is intentional
. Nueces County v. Ferguson, 97 S.W.3d 205, 223 (Tex. App.—Corpus Christi 2002, no pet.)
("[T]he Texas Tort
Claims Act specifically preserves sovereign immunity as to intentional torts...").
Ergo, if there was intentional
fraud, then the party/parties is/are not saved by the waived and may still be pursued.
