Ibieta v. Allstate Fire and Casualty Insurance Co.
The Western District of Texas previously had granted an insurer's motion to dismiss the UIM dispute because of the insured's failure to satisfy the federal pleading standards. The insured's attempt to reopen the case, however, was rejected by the Court because the insured did not respond to the motion to dismiss or amend its pleading within fourteen days of the court's order granting the dismissal, instead waiting more than 100 days after the case was dismissed to seek relief and have the case reopened.
