2017 Brought Wins, Losses for Insurance Policyholders

Last year was a busy one in insurance world. The Texas Legislature passed HB1774, which could profoundly change the balance of power betweenTexas Bar Today policyholders and insurance companies—and not to the benefit of policyholders.

The courts were also busy, offering policyholders a mixed bag of wins and losses. The Texas Supreme Court issued important decisions in USAA Texas Lloyds Co. v. Menchaca and Great American Insurance Co. et al. v. Hamel; the 14th Court of Appeals weighed in on Wyly v. Integrity Insurance Solutions; and the United State Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit issued its ruling in AIG Specialty Ins. Co. v. Tesoro Corporation.


Amy Elizabeth Stewart presented a rundown of these important cases and legislation earlier this month at the Litigation Update Institute, co-sponsored by Texas Bar CLE and the Litigation Section of the State Bar of Texas. Below is the accompanying text. A downloadable pdf version of the materials can be found here.
