Insurance Agent Liability - Sophia Matassa Campo, et al. v. Randy J. Sternberger
Ms. Lessell successfully argued and obtained a summary judgment on behalf of an insurance agency in a complex, consolidated case. The case arose out of allegedly defective construction. The insurance agency was named as a third party defendant by the builder, who claimed that the agency must have been negligent in procuring insurance for it, since all of his insurers had denied a defense for the claim. The Motion for Summary Judgment was predicated on both the duty of an insurance agent to the insured and peremption pursuant to La. R.S. 9: 5606.
