Travelers Property Casualty Insurance Company of America v. Jet Midwest Technik, No. 17-2628 (8th Cir. 2018)Annotate this Case
The Eighth Circuit reversed the district court's dismissal of a breach-of-contract action to recover unpaid insurance premiums. The court held that the administrative procedures available to the insurer were too informal to require exhaustion under then-applicable Missouri law. Therefore, Travelers had no obligation to exhaust its administrative remedies before filing its lawsuit. The court remanded for further proceedings.
