The United States District Court, Northern District, Dallas Division, issued an opinion in April 2018, titled, Grand Hotel Hospitality LLC d/b/a Grand Hotel Dallas v. Certain Underwriters at Lloyd’s of London et al.
This is a breach of contract case where Grand Hotel suffered a fire damage and sued Lloyd’s and the adjuster assigned to handle the claim. There were allegations for violation of the Texas Insurance Code, Section 541.060, made against the adjuster, Brandon Weir.
The lawsuit was filed in State Court and the Defendants caused the case to be removed to Federal Court alleging the joinder of Weir was fraudulent in order to beat diversity jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. Section 1332.
