Thomas Spitaletto (Partner-Dallas, TX) and Tim Delabar (Associate, Dallas, TX) secured a complete defense verdict in the162nd District Court, Dallas County, Texas, against a claim of more than $600,000 in damages resulting from a fire. Our insurer client disputed coverage on the basis of arson, which is notoriously difficult to prove.
