Judge Overrules Ace American Insurance’s Attempts to Keep Testimony of its Adjusters Secret; Orders Depositions to Move Forward

On April 26th 2010, a Harris County District Judge heard a motion in an insurance bad faith case regarding Ace American Insurance’s refusal to provide its adjusters to testify regarding their actions in wrongfully denying claims.

Instead of following the Texas rules on discovery, Ace American asked the Court to assure that whatever the adjusters testified to be kept secret and not placed on Doyle’s website. The Judge immediately dismissed Ace American’s delay and conceal tactics and ordered the depositions to go forward. In this case, Doyle represents two injured employees of BJ Field Services whose right to worker’s compensation benefits were unreasonably denied in bad faith.
