Boys Scouts of America v. The Hartford Fire Accident & Indemnity Co.
A Court of the Northern District of Texas held that a non-diverse plaintiff was not improperly joined as a party because the defendant insurer denied the duty to defend and the question was therefore ripe for determination where there was a possibility of recovery, but remand was not required because the Court could not determine whether it maintained "related to" subject matter jurisdiction in connection with a pending Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
