Texas Insurance Code
Sec. § 101.353
Bond Requirement for Court Proceeding


(a)

Except as provided by Subsection (c), before an unauthorized person or insurer may file a pleading in a court proceeding to which this subchapter applies, the person or insurer must deposit cash or securities or file a bond with good and sufficient sureties approved by the court in an amount determined by the court as sufficient to pay any final judgment that may be rendered in the proceeding.

(b)

An unauthorized person or insurer must file the deposit required by this section with the clerk of the court in which the proceeding is pending.

(c)

The court may issue an order waiving the deposit or bond required by this section if the unauthorized person or insurer demonstrates to the court’s satisfaction that the person or insurer maintains sufficient available funds or securities in a state in the United States, in trust or otherwise, to satisfy any final judgment that may be rendered in the proceeding.
