The Monson Law Firm Wins Bad Faith Motion for Summary Judgment

Attorney Blake Lusk recently won a summary judgment motion on behalf of Lighthouse Property Insurance Corporation (“Lighthouse”) in the Civil District Court for the Parish of Orleans.  In the matter entitled “Alfred Scott and Shann Butler Scott vs. Lighthouse Property Insurance Corporation,” plaintiffs made claim for bad faith damages following residential damage caused by a vehicle.  Lighthouse and plaintiffs agreed to the appraisal process, resulting in a confirmed appraisal award  and additional payments to plaintiffsof less than $14,000.00.  In granting Lighthouse’s Motion for Summary Judgment, the Court determined that plaintiffs failed to establish that they could satisfy their burden of proof at trial.  As a result, the Court granted Lighthouse’s summary judgment motion and dismissed plaintiffs’ claims for bad faith penalties pursuant to La. R.S. 22:1892 and La. R.S. 22:1973.  Please click here for a copy of the Judgment.
