Ekhlassi v. National Lloyds Insurance Co.

Court: 5th Cir  06/04/2019  Fifth Circuit Affirms Judgment for Insurer in Flood Insurance Dispute Barred by One-Year Statute of Limitations

The circuit court determined that the one-year statute of limitations in 42 U.S.C. 4072 applies to "write-your-own" insurers, and insured's claim was not brought in or removed to federal court within a year of the insurer's denial as required by the National Flood Insurance Act, which provided for original exclusive jurisdiction in federal court.
