Avery's "intrinsic value"
The Texas Supreme Court overturned a novel ruling that provided damages [comparing it to rulings on sentimental value of an heirloom] for the sentimental value of a dog. The court deemed such a major change of the law, especially given all the lines you had to draw, was better left to the legislature. Seems valid, but the legislature should act.
