Old American County Mutual Fire Insurance Co. v. Villegas
The court determined that, because the claimant's default judgment against a driver of an automobile did not dispose of its negligent entrustment claim against the owner of the automobile, the subequent turnover order entered before a final judgment was void. The trial court did not have subject matter jurisdiction over the claimant's subsequent amended petition against the driver's insurer because the claimant lacked standing to assert first-party claims against the insurer.
