Judge: Insured Did Not Show That Adjusters Violated Insurance Code

Mealey's (August 10, 2016, 1:49 PM EDT) -- SHERMAN, Texas — A claims adjuster and adjusting company were improperly joined in an insurance breach of contract and bad faith lawsuit because an insured failed to provide any fact to show that those defendants’ actions were in violation of the Texas Insurance Code, a federal judge in Texas ruled Aug. 8 in denying the insured’s motion to remand (Lillian Elizondo v. Metropolitan Lloyds Insurance Co. of Texas, et al., No. 16-306, E.D. Texas; 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 103878).
