The Cassitys have a rearguard strategy after all.

The Texas Department of Insurance paid a price for gaining control of NPS and its sister insurance companies: A Rule 11 Agreement.   Texas has agreed to not bring litigation against the companies, or various individuals and firms related to NPS.  A very steep price, but one Texas may have felt it had to pay in order to gain control of the NPS/Lincoln records. 

The $640 million question is who will pursue the Cassitys if the NPS cupboard turns out to be bare?
