Van Petty v. Homesite

(Client: Homesite Indemnity Company)

The Firm represented Homesite Indemnity Company in a Missouri state court class action lawsuit challenging coverage and the claim adjustment process.  The plaintiffs, on behalf of themselves and a putative state-wide class, sued in the Circuit Court of Green County alleging Homesite improperly withheld their policies’ deductibles when making actual-cash-value payments on building-loss claims over a ten-year period.  After Homesite filed a motion for summary judgment, plaintiffs voluntarily dismissed their lawsuit. Homesite is represented by Judy Y. Barrasso and Kimberly Silas.
