Richards v. State Farm Lloyds

Court: Tx Sup  03/20/2020  Supreme Court of Texas Refuses to Adopt "Policy Language" Exception to Longstanding "Eight Corners" Rule

The Court found that the "eight corners" rule has never been based on the inclusion of "groundless, false or fraudulent" language in insurance policies and, therefore, the lack of such language in the insurance policy did not allow the insurer to avoid application of the "eight corners" rule.
