Bowers v. Chubb Lloyd’s Insurance Co. of Texas

Court: ND Tx  09/24/2020  Remand Denied Where State Court Dismissal of Adjuster Created Diversity

Insureds under a homeowners insurance policy filed a motion to remand on the grounds that the state court dismissal of an adjuster under Texas Insurance Code Section 542A.006 could not create diversity because dismissal was not voluntary by plaintiffs, but a court of the Northern District of Texas disagreed and denied remand because under an exception to the "voluntary-involuntary rule," dismissal of the adjuster was not reversible on appeal.
