In re State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co.

Court: Tx 1-Houston  03/17/2020  Mandamus Issued in UM/UIM Dispute Regarding Timeliness of Insurer's Offer to Settle

A trial court abused its discretion by not abating extra-contractual claims against a UM/UIM insurer even though the trial court had severed the extra-contractual claims from the underlying declaratory judgment action because the insurer should not have to respond to discovery on such claims prior to a finding that it breached the contract.
