The appellee insurers filed petitions seeking, among other things, declaratory judgment that their respective rate filings were protected from disclosure under Public Information Act trade-secret exceptions. Under a plain-meaning review of the relevant statutes, the rate-filing information at issue in this case is open to public inspection under the Insurance Code without regard to the disclosure exceptions provided by the PIA. The trial court's judgment is reversed and rendered. Austin Court of Appeals, No. 03-11-00179-CV, 08-29-2013.
