Rodriguez v. Safeco Insurance Co. of Indiana
A court of the Northern District of Texas granted homeowner insurer's motion for summary judgment holding that insurer's payment of appraisal plus estimated penalty interest barred insured's claim for attorney's fees under Tex. Ins. Code Sec. 542A, finding clear legislative intent for Tex. Ins. Code Sec. 542A to limit recovery of attorney's fees despite apparent conflict with Texas Prompt Payment Act.
