Steven Badger Quoted in Southeast Texas Record Regarding State Farm Defeat of Hail Claim Lawsuit

March 28, 2016

Steven Badger, a partner in the Dallas office of Zelle, was quoted in an article titled “State Farm defeats Mostyn hail claim, judge threatens to sanction him” that was published on the Southeast Texas Record website. 

The article covers State Farm Lloyds recently adding to its string of civil victories in hailstorm litigation, obtaining a summary judgment win in a lawsuit brought by the Mostyn Law Firm – a suit a federal judge found “factually unsupported,” like “many” of the storm claims brought by the Houston firm.

Badger, who represents the commercial property insurance industry in significant risk exposure subrogation and coverage matters, said, “This case is typical of the model we see in hundreds of lawsuits all across Texas.  The insurance carrier pays the claim and the homeowner is happy. Two years later, the insurance company gets sued. These lawsuits are not about people who didn’t get their roofs paid for, but instead about people who are being promised riches by their lawyers.”
