Stowell v. United Property & Casualty Insurance Co.
A Court of the Northern District of Texas applied the "majority view" among Texas Federal District Courts that an insurer's Texas Insurance Code Sec. 542A.006 election of legal responsibility for adjuster post-suit and pre-removal did not defeat diversity jurisdiction based on improper joinder, finding right of recovery at time of joinder in state court.
