Texas Mutual Insurance Co. v. Hofer Builders, Inc.
Appellate court finds that the Division of Workers' Compensation did not have exclusive jurisdiction and no requirement existed for the parties to exhaust any administrative remedies because the injured claimant did not seek Texas benefits, but the court ultimately determined that summary judgment should not be granted for either party in dispute over "Limited Reimbursement for Texas Employees Injured in Other Jurisdictions" endorsement because neither party conclusively established whether the employee was "hired or recruited in this state."
