Posted today on the Property Insurance Coverage Law blog and reproduced with permission of Chip Merlin:
Last November, I wrote a post, A Chance For Mississippi Courts To Get It Right, about a very important case that will be argued before the Mississippi Supreme Court next Tuesday, June 9, 2009, at 1:30 p.m. I know many must think that justice sometimes moves at a snail’s pace because six months have passed since I first wrote about the case and we are only arguing the appeal. Corban v USAA is important to Mississippi policyholders, and the arguments can be watched live over the Internet.
Here are some of the Briefs:
- Corban Initial brief and Reply brief
- USAA USAA Answer Brief
- Amicus Brief filed on behalf of United Policyholders by the Merlin Law Group (You do not want to miss my prose.)
- Amicus Brief Nationwide
- Amicus Brief Attorney General (State of Mississippi)
- Amicus Brief Allstate
- Amicus Brief NAMIC and State Farm
Corban raises the most important issues regarding causation and burdens of proof which have been at issue in the Mississippi Katrina cases. Finally, the highest Court in this fair state will hear the issues so important to its citizens. It will be a landmark decision no matter how it is decided.
As additional briefs are added, SLABBED will update this post.
