Federal Judge Refuses To Dismiss Coverage Dispute Over Defective Flooring Claims
Mealey's (October 9, 2015, 2:33 PM EDT) -- SAN ANTONIO — A Texas federal judge on Oct. 7 denied an insured’s motion to dismiss its insurer’s lawsuit disputing coverage from an underlying defective wood flooring products claim, finding that jurisdictional discovery relating to the insured’s contacts within Texas is appropriate and dismissal in favor of a parallel action is unwarranted (Maxum Indemnity Co. v. BRW Floors Inc., et al., No. 15-00167, W.D. Texas; 2015 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 137356).
