Green v. Allstate Fire and Casualty Insurance Co.
After UIM insurer filed motion to dismiss plaintiff's claims for breach of UIM policy and related extra-contractual claims, a court of the Western District of Texas found that plaintiff's breach of contract claim could proceed even where legal entitlement to UIM benefits had yet to be established, finding it was prudent to allow the claim to proceed based on unsettled legal authority but further held that the extra-contractual claims should be abated.
