Insurer withdraws plans to force Maryland consumers into bundling policies

Update on my Tuesday column about "forced bundling," where an insurance company requires you buy an auto policy from it if you want a homeowner's policy. Maryland wants to ban this practice. 

I mentioned that Florida-based Merastar Insurance Co. notified Maryland officials of its intention to require consumers to buy both homeowner's and auto insurance from it if they want any coverage. State officials say Merastar has withdrawn its filing.
