Bexar Diversified MF-1, LLC v. General Star Indemnity Co.
A court of the Western District of Texas denied an insured's motion to remand where a property insurer properly elected to assume an insurance agent's liability under Texas Insurance Code Section 542A.006, finding diversity is determined at the time of the petition for removal, disagreeing with authority finding diversity jurisdiction is determined at the time of joinder, and holding it was unnecessary for the state court to formally dismiss the non-diverse agent prior to removal.
