Insuring against punitive damages.

As reported in the July 22 Texas Lawyer, a panel of the 2nd Court of Appeals in Fort Worth has voted 2-1 that insuring for punitives does not violate public policy. The case is Westchester Fire Insurance Co. v. Admiral Insurance Co. This could be a really big deal, if the Texas Supreme Court takes the case, no matter which way they go on this issue.
