Appellants Central Counties Center for Mental Health & Mental Retardation Services (the “Center”) and Austin State Hospital (the “Hospital”) bring these interlocutory appeals *fn1 from the district courts’ orders denying their pleas to the jurisdiction in suits filed by appellees Karen Rodriguez in the first case and Debbie Fiske and Raymond Rodriguez in the second. Because the cases’ outcome depends on this Court’s determination of the same issue, we have consolidated them for oral argument and will deliver one opinion. Karen Rodriguez filed suit against the Center for personal injuries, including sexual exploitation by a Center employee. Fiske and Raymond Rodriguez sued the Hospital for damages they suffered and on behalf of their son, Christopher Roy Rodriguez, who committed suicide while he was a patient at the Hospital. *fn2 We will affirm the district courts’ orders denying appellants’ pleas to the jurisdiction.
