Barrasso Usdin Defends Full Summary Judgment Win at U.S. Fifth Circuit

(Client: Firm Insurance Client)

After winning summary judgment in the Southern District of Mississippi in a third-party coverage dispute, Judy Barrasso and Chloé Chetta saved their client $1 million in potential coverage obligations by successfully defending that ruling at the United States Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.  After a hard-fought removal battle in the Southern District of Mississippi, Judy and Chloé persuaded the district court to grant full summary judgment in favor of their insurer client on an issue of contractual interpretation, avoiding all liability for a significant underlying wrongful death claim.
