Koenig v. Unitrin Safeguard Insurance Co.
A court of the Western District of Texas held that an insurer's Tex. Ins. Code Sec. 542A.006 election of its adjusters' liability in insurer's state court answer was sufficient election of adjusters' liability "at the time of removal" and, as a result, the insured had no plausible basis of recovery against the adjusters, requiring dismissal of adjusters and satisfaction of diversity jurisdiction.
