Texas Windstorm Insurance Association v. Stephen Pruski
Year 2023
Court Texas Supreme Court
Case Number 23-0447
  • Jurisdiction
  • Texas

In its amicus brief, United Policyholders addresses a jurisdictional question with far-reaching implications. The issue is whether a provision of Texas Insurance Code Section 2210.575(e) renders a decision made by a Texas District Court judge who was not appointed by the proper MDL panel void. United Policyholders argues that the relevant statute is not “jurisdictional” and therefore that the thousands of decisions rendered by Texas judges since 2011 remain valid.

In May of 2024, the Texas Supreme Court issued a decision aligning with United Policyholders interpretation of the statute and explicitly citing United Policyholders amicus brief in a footnote.
