“Plaintiffs [Allstate] and defendants [Auto Glass America and Charles Isaly] jointly move for an order continuing all case deadlines for a period of four months in order to allow the parties to fully address the new issues raised in defendants’ counterclaim, to address defendants’ class action claims, and to address any additional issues raised in an amended counterclaim,” portions of a newly filed joint motion to continue trial reads.
Both parties in the Allstate v. Auto Glass America (AGA) and its owner Isaly, filed a joint motion to continue trial proceedings and all remaining pretrial deadlines.
The lawsuit began with Allstate’s December 2018 complaint, in which the company detailed ten counts against AGA and Isaly, stating the pair “tried to pressure Allstate’s insureds into hiring them for windshield replacements, obtaining assignments of benefits (AOBs) from insureds, submitting invoices to Allstate for excessive and unreasonable amounts and fil[ing] over 1,400 lawsuits for recovery of excessive and unreasonable amounts,” by stating Allstate shouldn’t be entitled to any financial relief.
Motion Regarding Counterclaim Also Filed
According to court documents, the joint motion was not the only item filed in the Florida middle courtroom, as Allstate also filed a motion to compel. If granted this motion would require the defendant’s [AGA and Isaly] to produce additional documents to support the pairs’ new allegations seen in the counterclaim the pair filed against the insurance company.
According to court documents, Allstate is requesting AGA and Isaly produce several items for the court, which include:
- “All invoices submitted by or on behalf of AGA to Allstate seeking payment for windshield repairs or replacements;
- All work orders generated in connection with AGA’s repairs or replacements of windshields for which it has sought payment by Allstate;
- Communications between AGA and Allstate regarding or pertaining to any Allstate insured;
- Copies of recordings of calls between AGA and any Allstate insured, agent, or employee;
- Payroll records of AGA’s employees; and
- Invoices, work orders, purchase orders, or other documents showing AGA’s purchase of windshields that were used in replacing windshields of Allstate’s insureds.”
