Jackson v. Meridian Security Insurance Co.
A magistrate of the Western District of Texas recommended that the district court grant insureds' motion to remand, applying the "majority" view for post-suit elections under Sec. 542A.006 and finding that the insureds sufficiently pleaded facts for their Sec. 541.060(a)(7) claim against the non-diverse adjuster because it is not a fraud-based claim and because an adjuster can be individually liable under Sec. 541.060(a)(7).
