The Supreme Court of Texas has ruled that an insurer’s payment of an appraisal award barred the insured’s breach of contract claim premised on failure to pay the amount of the covered loss and barred the insured’s common law and statutory bad faith claims to the extent the only actual damages sought were lost policy benefits, but did not bar the insured’s claim under the Texas Prompt Payment Act.
