CFHO OBTAINS SUMMARY JUDGMENT IN COVERAGE LAWSUIT
Congratulations to Wm. David Farmer and Chad W. Schreiber for successfully obtaining a summary judgment in a suit for declaratory relief filed in the 49th District Court, Zapata County, Texas. The suit sought a judicial determination regarding the duties of defense and indemnity under a commercial automobile policy. The issue before the court concerned whether an indemnity agreement between an insured and a third party qualified as an “insured contract” under the policy and required the interpretation of an anti-indemnity statute contained within the Texas Transportation Code. Chad W. Schreiber successfully argued the motion before Judge Robert Chesire.
