A Delicious Irony / Sop is One Lucky Blogger (Updated)

First off folks I peeked at Slabbed for the first time today and noticed Nowdy’s posts on both the Perdigao and Rigsby related litigation. IMHO this is top flight stuff that represents hours of hard work. Props to Nowdy!

Meantime I’ve been tied up with paying work. I wonder if C. @ USAA realized she just faxed the imfamous Sop.  🙂

Prompt courteous service with a smile. I’ve found folks from San Antonio were just naturally friendly. Plus one mention of the 4 letters USAA brings them running to Slabbed.

I understand some of you are wondering about the post tags. Continue reading “A Delicious Irony / Sop is One Lucky Blogger (Updated)”

Texas Windstorm Association passes the cowboy hat to cover Ike

We knew it would come to passing the hat – that’s the way these state windpools work – and that it would have to be a Texas-sized hat and passed more than once.  The results from round one are in and the surprise is Allstate got the short straw and came out owing more than State Farm.

The state’s second-largest home insurer will pay the most in the state windstorm association’s initial round of assessments.

Allstate Insurance Group must fork over $65.5 million to the Texas Windstorm Insurance Association, which sells coverage to coastal homes and businesses that can’t find it elsewhere.

Allstate declined to comment. Continue reading “Texas Windstorm Association passes the cowboy hat to cover Ike”

Update on Renfroe v Rigsby, the Alabama case

After the Qui Tam legal team found Renfroe tripped playing defense and refuted their claim with their own record in the Alabama case, I checked on the latest developments.

The Appeal filed by Dick Scruggs is moving forward in the 11th Circuit; however, the mediation ordered by Judge Acker has stalled according to the Status Report filed by a Renfroe attorney. Continue reading “Update on Renfroe v Rigsby, the Alabama case”

It's about time – Judge Fallon schedules hearings on Perdigao's motions: Part 2

Let’s start by picking up from Sop’s last post on USA v Perdigao as the overview it provides is helpful even if you aren’t a new SLABBED reader – and because it appears now that Perdigao’s Motion to Authorize Issuance of Subpoenas Duces Tecum Pursuant to Rule 17(C) also marked a turning point in this case; and, if not that the Motion to Deposit Funds Held by U.S. Marshal Service in Interest-Bearing Account he filed the same day (9-25-08) or the two in combination.

Both motions contained a notice of hearing – and it’s important to note that Judge Fallon had recently granted motions filed by Perdigao despite motions in opposition filed by USA Letten:

Order granting Motion for Hearing on Motion to Modify Conditions of Release to Permit Certain Travel and and MOTION to Modify Conditions of Release to Permit Certain Travel (issued 09/17/08) and Order granting Motion for Leave to File a reply memorandum (issued 9/18/08).

It’s also important to note the hearing granting the first order was held on the 22nd of September – and that it is Perdigao’s conduct at this hearing that the USA references in the Motion in limine he filed shortly thereafter.  Hold onto these thoughts until we pick up the USA’s motion again as we move forward.

After the motions Perdigao filed on the 25th, we find he filed six more the next day (9-26-08 ): Continue reading “It's about time – Judge Fallon schedules hearings on Perdigao's motions: Part 2”

about the proven integrity of Todd Graves

Even at this late hour, I can’t let the opportunity to note this development pass or to express my regret that he got slabbed again by the insurance apologists of USA v Scruggs.

As pleased as I am to link a few of the related documents, I can not do so without saying how deeply disappointed I am to see Senator Kit Bond’s association.

The Inspector General’s report on the politics behind DOJ’s firing of nine US Attorneys is here. Continue reading “about the proven integrity of Todd Graves”
