A controversial deal between the Travis County District Attorney’s Office and Texas Mutual
Insurance Company has been suspended. Going back to at least 2000, Texas Mutual has paid the
DA’s office to prosecute “crimes committed against the company,” such as fraud. Under the
arrangement, investigators directly employed by Texas Mutual gather information and provide a
referral to the DA. The controversy surrounds the fact that only crimes committed against Texas
Mutual, and not all insurers, are being pursued. In 2014, payments from Texas Mutual to the DA’s
office totaled $430,000.
