Texas High Court: Discovery Order Was Not Tailored To Time, Place Or Subject Matter

Mealey's (November 8, 2016, 10:03 PM EST) -- AUSTIN, Texas — The Texas Supreme Court on Oct. 28 held that a pretrial court’s discovery order in a hailstorm coverage dispute was overbroad because it was not tailored with regard to time, place or subject matter, directing the lower court to vacate the part of its order compelling production of management reports and emails and re-evaluate the issue of sanctions against the insurer (In re National Lloyds Insurance Company, Relator, No. 15-0452, Texas Sup.; 2016 Tex. LEXIS 963).
