Massachusetts Bay Insurance Co. v. Adkins

Court: Tx 1-Houston  12/03/2020  MDL Court Properly Obtained Jurisdiction Based on Non-Party Insurer's Intervention in Asbestos Cases

The court found that the Multi-District Litigation court had properly denied the plaintiffs' request to remand the asbestos cases to the district courts even though the insurer who removed the case had not been sued because, as an intervenor, the insurer had the ability to take the action and the plaintiffs had not moved to strike the intervention. The court further affirmed the MDL court's granting of special appearances by all but one of the insurer defendants.
