Little Scores Verdict Against Insurance Company

Following a bench trial in Harris County District Court, Buck Keenan partner Lesley E. Little obtained a $425,000 judgment against a homeowners’ insurance carrier. Les’ clients had their fire damage claim denied based on alleged arson. At trial, the insurance company’s fire cause and origin expert testified that the fire was intentionally set. The Court found that the insurer failed to prove arson and entered judgment based on the insurer’s breach of contract and violations of the Texas Insurance Code.
