Offensive and Defensive Summary Judgment in Favor of RSJG Client/Insurer Affirmed on Appeal

In a case involving the non-payment of insurance premiums under an assigned risk worker’s compensation policy, Evans Bailey and Ron Davenport successfully argued for an offensive and defensive summary judgment in favor of their client, a national insurance company. The trial court found that the insurer was not only entitled to the premiums that had not been paid, but also that the defendant’s counterclaims alleging fraud and various other torts against the insurer and its alleged agent were not viable. The Alabama Court of Civil Appeals affirmed the trial court’s decision on appeal without an opinion on June 14, 2013.
