Steven Badger Quoted in SE Texas Record Regarding Hail Suits Filings Before HB 1774 Vote

Steven Badger, a partner in the Dallas office of Zelle, was quoted in an article titled “Mostyn Law floods Bexar County with hail suits right before HB 1774 vote” that was published on the SE Texas Record website.

In the days leading up to the bill’s passage, hail attorneys collectively filed 42 hailstorm lawsuits against insurance companies, adjusters and agents in Bexar County – the majority of which were brought by the Mostyn Law Firm in Houston.
