TN Farmers v. DeBruce - Supreme Ct Decision

17 Oct 2019 11:00 AM | Mary Gadd (Administrator)

TN Supreme Court has issued its opinion in the DeBruce case. This was an insurance coverage / dec action case in which TDLA members Hank Spragins, Elijah Settlemyre and Hannah Lowe wrote the Amicus brief on behalf of TDLA.  The court agreed with TDLA’s (and Tennessee Farmers’) position and found that the tort plaintiff is not a necessary party to a dec action between an insurance company and its insured.
