All insurers should resist dubious claims

Shingles are something you never want to have, unless they're on the top of your house or on the outside of your law office. 

Joe Cantu is fortunate not to have shingles, at least not on his roof, but he does have cement tiles up there, and some of them apparently got damaged when the March 29, 2012 hailstorm hit his Hidalgo County home. 

Though conceding that only 8-14 tiles were damaged, Cantu nevertheless wanted his insurer, State Farm Lloyds, to replace all the tiles on his roof, ostensibly to make sure they would match. 

When State Farm told Cantu “can't do,” Cantu said “can too” and filed suit. 

Last month, a federal jury agreed with State Farm. It wasn't a difficult decision in the end, because the cost of replacing the damaged tiles was less than Cantu's deductible.
