Here is an opinion issued by a Magistrate Judge from the Western District, Austin Division, which says that the insurer was too late in accepting responsibility for the acts of its agent, the adjuster, when the company accepted responsibility the day before removal was filed. The case is styled, Robbins Place West Campus, LLC v. Mid-Century Ins. Co. and Jillian Meghan Sherman.
In this case, Robbins had commercial insurance coverage with Mid-Century when Robbins suffered wind and hail damage. Robbins was unhappy with the way the claim was handled by the adjuster, Sherman, and sued Sherman and Mid-Century in State District Court for various violations of the Texas Insurance Code and breach of contract.
Pursuant to Texas Insurance Code, Section 542A.006, Mid-Century made an election to legal responsibility for Sherman. The next day, Mid-Century removed the case to this Federal Court.
