Ironwood Building II, Ltd. v. Axis Surplus Insurance Co.
After an insured submitted a claim for roof damages resulting from a tornado, damage from a previous hail storm was discovered, and a Court of the Western District of Texas denied the insured's and the insurer's cross-motions for summary judgment on covered damages, finding that, if tornado and hail damage was concurrent, then the insured failed to segregate such damages, but if the causes were independent, then the insured would not bear the same burden; thus, fact issues precluded summary judgment.
