In re Sentry Insurance

Court: Tx 11-Eastland  11/06/2020  Court Denies in Part and Grants in Part Workers' Compensation Insurer's Mandamus on Jurisdiction

The court found that the district court had abused its discretion when it failed to dismiss a workers' compensation claimant's allegations that the insurer had failed to pay medical expenses because the claimant had not exhausted his administrative remedies but found that the district court had properly exercised jurisdiction over the claimant's common-law and statutory bad faith claims related to the insurer's alleged breach of a settlement agreement between the insurer and claimant.
