Description

A joint Texas Tribune/Austin American-Statesman investigation revealed that the state's largest and oldest provider of workers' compensation coverage — Texas Mutual Insurance — had paid millions of dollars to the Travis County District Attorney's Office to get public prosecutors to pursue alleged crimes against the company. It was an enormous conflict of interest that had flown under the radar for more than a decade, a private justice system that gave special treatment to one insurer — and subjected many unsuspecting blue-collar workers to lawsuits.
