Federal Court Grants Summary Judgment on Sinkhole Loss Claim

Liberty Mutual Insurance put up a fight but Federal Judge Elizabeth Kovachevich granted our motion for summary judgment today. Several attorneys and law firms were responsible for representing the plaintiffs. That is not uncommon, especially since insurance companies often also employ the same strategy and hire a number of attorneys and law firms to ensure that they can avoid paying out claims. The full text of the Order can be found here: Order Granting Pf’s MSJ.

In the end, the Court, in its wisdom, ruled that “structural damage” means “damage to the structure.” To us at Fulgencio Law, it sounds about right.
