First Party (PIP)

Motor Vehicle Litigation / March 21, 2017

Court/Case No: Michigan Court of Appeals/330124

Tried/Argued Before: Judge

Demand: $40,000.00

Verdict: $0 – Summary Disposition granted

Name of Judge(s):  Honorable Jane Markey, Kurtis Wilder, and Brock Swartzle

Keys to the Case:

Years of experience dealing with the No-Fault Act – coupled with exhaustive legal research, concise briefing, and thorough preparation for appellate oral argument – enabled GEICO’s appellate counsel to secure the reversal of the trial court’s denial of GEICO’s motion for summary disposition.  The panel accepted GEICO’s argument that the plaintiff sued the wrong entity; that the governing insurance policy did not provide for PIP benefits, and the entity that issued the policy, GEICO Casualty Company, was not registered with the State of Michigan under MCL 500.3163; and that the trial court improperly ignored the separate corporate identities of the named defendant and GEICO Casualty Company.
