insurance company requests Login/Join

An insurance company wants to know the names and address information for some juvenile's parents - to sue them civilly for a burglary of a vehicle charge. This office orders out of pocket expenses to the victim (deductibles usually), but does not order reimbursement to insurance companies. Can a prosecutor's office give those names and information to the insurance company?

NO !

Tell them to tell their attorney to file a motion under Chapter 58.

There are lots of prior posts with the section numbers, including one on military requests.

I agree. I tell the insurance rep that I cannot release information on a juvenile case, and cite the section of the Family Code -- 58.007(b)(5)--that allows the company to petition the juvenile court for the information.

Most recently, one company asked and received my standard answer. Several weeks later a different rep called. I referred him to my previous conversation with the other rep.

What part of "NO" don't they understand?!

When the insurance companies call us, we tell them we cannot give them the information, but that we CAN give it to the victim. Our judges have a written order in effect allowing us to give certain information to the victim in order to pursue a civil suit for restitution and damages. If the insured victim calls and requests it, we give the victim the juvenile's parents names and addresses - but not phone numbers. The insurance companies can always get the information from their insured.
