Mobile Attorneys Obtain Summary Judgment in Negligent Procurement Case

Jonathan Minchin and Natalie Daugherty, both of the firm’s Mobile office, recently secured summary judgment on behalf of their clients, an insurance company and its agent, in a negligence and negligent procurement case in the Circuit Court of Winston County, Alabama.  The plaintiff claimed that it was not advised to purchase business interruption insurance and, as a result, suffered losses in excess of 2 million following a fire. Judge John Bentley dismissed the plaintiff’s claims with prejudice, holding that neither the insurance company nor its agent owed a duty to the plaintiff, and, even if such a duty was owed, no evidence of breach existed.
