Industries

  • Prevailed on a number of pretrial motions in a high exposure insurance bad faith case, leading to a favorable settlement for the client. The Court’s rulings excluded most of the Plaintiff’s bad faith expert’s opinions, the policy limits, evidence about plaintiff’s reasonable expectations when purchasing coverage, reserves, and speculative future lost wages.
  • Obtained an order quashing substituted service under C.R.S. § 42-7-414(3)(a) on a driver who was not a named insured, on the basis that allowing a plaintiff to use the statute to obtain personal jurisdiction over someone who was not a named insured violates due process.
