Where relators sought a writ of mandamus or prohibition arguing that Section 537.065 did not confer upon the insurer the right to intervene in their action because the action involved only claims for property damage, the statute did not confer an unconditional right to intervene under Rule 52.12(a) because the statute did not apply to claims relating to property damage.
Preliminary writ made permanent.
