Plaintiffs filed suit alleging that Allstate breached the terms of their insurance policies by not using either the "Cost Approach" or "Comparable Sales Approach" to determine the "Actual Cash Value" (ACV) of their automobiles. The Fifth Circuit affirmed the district court's grant of Allstate's motion to dismiss under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(b)(6), concluding that neither the contract nor Texas state law requires either the Cost or the Comparable Sales Approach.
