Breaking: Slabbed Exclusive – Rigsby’s qui tam prevails on summary judgment!

Details coming but short story is that McIntosh false claim will go to jury first.  Then Judge Senter will consider discovery on other claims.  He has also asked State Farm to submit information on similar claims.

Summary judgment was also granted on the retaliation claim.

Congratulations Kerri and Cori and most of all thank you!

  3. Wait didn’t the odds makers call this case dead several months ago? Rossmiller etc. Wait didn’t the odds makers call Gene’s bill dead? Same odds makers up at State Farm headquarters. Wrong on Rigbsy’s, wrong on wind/water insurance. When will the media stop listening to the insurance PR spin machine?

  5. This is a really good opinion. But with due respect to Judge Senter, how in the world can he conclude that State Farm had the government’s “verbal” authority to make a cause and origin determination on slabs, popsicle sticks and cabana claims such that it could be assumed that flood policy limits should be paid without inspection (in some instances)?

  7. I went ahead and put the link to Nowdy’s post here over at David’s blog. It seems to answer the question he posed on one of his threads?

    Answer—> They belong in Federal Court my man…

    Insurance Person of the Year
    Nothing like giving the readers a lot of advance notice before an ultra-high stakes award like this is finalized, right? I’m a bit tardy on this, but hey, it’s not like I’m on the advisory board of the Insurance Law Center and might have been expected to post on this more than a day before the contest ends . . . oh yeah, I am.

    Well, in any event, here is a link to the ILC’s Insurance Person of the Year voting, with four big categories: policyholder lawyers, regulators, judges and insurer-side lawyers. In the last category, I’m surprised no one nominated Dickie Scruggs — he almost did more for State Farm and other insurers, in the long run, than they did for themselves.

    (By the way, I’m almost done writing my musical, The Katrina Follies. Here’s one of the latest songs I’ve written, Don’t Ignore Rigsbys, which is sung to the tune of the Beatles’ Eleanor Rigby. This song comes in early in the second act, sung by the actors portraying Dickie Scruggs and Mississippi AG Jim Hood).

    Ah, look at those two whistleblowers

    Ah, look at those two whistleblowers

    Don’t ignore Rigsbys

    Picked out the fraud from the files where Snake Farm had it hid

    That’s what they did

    Met in a trailer, accessed computers and lawyers were there

    Just ’cause they dared

    All the whistleblowers, where do they all come from?

    All the whistleblowers, where do they all belong?

    Anyway, check out the link, if you care to. You too can vote for your favorite! As long as it’s one of the finalists listed. A veritable Insurance People’s Choice Award. And don’t worry, you’ve got . . . well, almost two whole days left, until March 18, to get your vote or comment in.

  8. This is of course what should have happened, but I think we’re all so beaten down, we reflexively expect the corporate predators to always win. God knows, I can point to horrendous discovery orders handing SF a license to cheat and steal; it’s just absurd. However, this order provides some measure of hope that not every person in the federal spoils system is in the pocket of corporate predators. I only hope that one day the Rigsbys get to expose how SF and Renfroe defrauded the federal flood program, with the aid and abetment of federal court officials and pimp insurance commissioners. It’s another sickening American tragedy on par with the literally hundreds we see coming out every day, e.g., most recently, Angelo Mozilo/Countrywide’s real estate loans (bribes) to senators, congressional reps and other key political figures, etc. See story on Edolphus Towns’ two Mozilo “loans”, a congressman who’s head of (get this) the House Oversight and Gov’t Reform Committee.

  9. Finally had time to read (& digest) the 11 pg. Memorandum Opinion entered today by Jdg. L.T. Senter, Jr., in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, ex. rel., & the RIgsby sisters v. State Farm, et al.

    Before the instant Memorandum became public, I’d already read this morning’s story on SLABBED by Nowdy (“Expedite is a Plaintiff’s Turtle and Insurer’s Hare”) and, after reading that, I read the accompanying comments by Nowdy & Sop:

    “Once again Judge Walker is demonstrating to the world the myriad of ways his courtroom has become a magic jurisdiction for insurance companies that have a penchant for hosing the elderly. Both he and Judge Senter (who allows such miscarriages of justice out of his magistrate) should be hanging their heads in shame.”

    -sop

    and then Nowdy’s comment saying:

    “…Right you are, Sop, and when Judge Senter steps back and takes a look, it

  10. Nowdy is a regular spot light on State Farm’s worst issue. The game of Katrina claims were planned long before Katrina hit our shores. The titans of insurance meet every year in New York City at the Insurance Information Institute’s annual convention and make plans for the industry. A couple of years before Katrina they hit on the idea of using the next huge disaster to get a new federal program to help the home owners insurance industry in a manner similar to what 9-11 did for commerical insurance companies IE a federal backstop to be used for reinsurance. This would help the industry in three way. One it would change the risk to be assumed from a long tail risk (for the industry) to one which resembled more of a bell shaped risk, two it would greatly reduce the amount of money the industry would have to hold in reserves for rapid payment of CAT events and thus allow the industry to make more money on their investments and third it would allow the industry to attempt to keep charging the same premiums for their insurance and not assume the same level of risk. One theory of why the industry might want to shift the payment of katrina claims from the industry to the fed’s is that the industry wanted to ensure the fed’s would be have massive loses on their books. This would prevent someone from combining wind/water into one policy with the fed’s being the policy backer because it would demonstrate that the fed’s were not capable of running an insurance company. Remember prior to Katrina the fed’s had been paying for NFIP and did not have a debt. So it appeared to be a successfull program prior to Katrina and its expanision was a risk the industry sought to eliminate via any means it could take.

    Hope this helps New Orleans Ladder buddy. Its a big battle because if we can prove the industry didn’t properly adjust claims and dumped payments of the fed’s than we can say—Why split the risk again with the industry when all they do is screw the tax payers when we split the risk with them. IE they are not able to be trusted to be partners with the fed’s. or something like that… More later.
