Mr Petro and I exchanged offline emails the gist of which is he still contends I still don’t understand his position and I still don’t buy in to the story. That said however the better angels of my nature (and yes Virginia I’m not a complete Son of a Bitch) have kicked in as I do not desire to see Mr Petro slabbed again despite the now imfamous You Tube Video. I have removed the original post from public viewing though I stand by the content 100%.
Instead of focusing on a negative of the what the Government, Church Groups or Volunteers didn’t do I’ll publish a different perspective of what Hurricane Katrina did do, namely give all who lived the experience a different slant on living. I hope those who visit here looking for Mr Petro’s train wreck of a you tube video leave with a different persepctive courtesy of the Katrina Prayer.

With the State Farm policy holders slabbed by Katrina, slabbed by State Farm’s handling of their claim, and most recently slabbed by Judge Senter’s disqualification of their legal representation are left twisting in the wind, State Farm “vigorous defense” is now a transparent attempt to slab them – and justice – once again.
The Motion to Stay filed yesterday by the attorneys for the Rigsby sisters noted the transparency.
This motion is nothing more than a transparent attempt to focus attention away from the fraud State Farm perpetrated on its own policyholders and on the federal government, and create a side-show big enough to camouflage its own obvious wrongdoing.
Comments on the web, however, suggest State Farm’s camouflage is wearing thin… Continue reading “Justice slabbed by State Farm’s transparent defense”
Over the past two weeks our readership has grown dramatically as we close in on matching our March totals in just 11days in April. Nowdy and I wish to thank our readers, especially our return visitors.
Like the March Report where I detailed some of our more popular posts for the month of March 2008 I thought I’d compile a list of my favorite insurance posts from the inception of the blog in December 2007.
We start by examining the concepts of weather modeling with some help from Sam Friedman over the National Underwriter. Small changes in the model inputs can mean big differences on your bill, as the Boston Globe noted in an editorial that we covered. The issues raised in the Globe editorial touch on the concepts of Market Transparency which is discussed here. Continue reading “A Quick Tour”
No one appears to be better qualified to breathe life into a Qui Tam claim than Tony Dewitt – the respiratory therapist- turned-attorney who filed the Rigsby sisters’ Qui Tam claim against State Farm.
Author of Is the Whistle Clean – An Examination of the Ethical Obligations of Attorneys in Filing False Claims Act Lawsuits and Citiizen Attorney Generals and the False Claims Act, Dewitt is an attorney with Bartimus, Frickleton, Robertson & Obetz of Kansas City, Missouri
With Dewitt’s full article linked above, what I’ve attempted to do in this post is link a few frequently heard questions and comments to related text. Continue reading “Getting to know Qui Tam and Tony Dewitt”
We are greeted this morning with an Anita Lee story on the Risgby Qui Tam case. While the Anthony Dewitt and company prepare their response to the latest barrage of State Farm legal filings they have asked the suit itself be suspended until Judge Senter rules. Here is the report:
Attorneys are asking for suspension of their whistle-blower lawsuit against State Farm until a federal judge decides whether they can continue to prosecute the case. Continue reading “Suspension of Ex Rel Rigsby Sought (Updated)”
