Several Updates Made in AOB Suit in FL

Written by Emmariah Holcomb, glassBYTEs.com


A Florida Middle courtroom has been filled with filings lately in the legal assignment of benefits (AOB) battle between Allstate Insurance Company, Allstate Fire and Casualty Insurance Company, Allstate Indemnity Company and Allstate Property and Casualty Insurance Company (collectively Allstate) and defendants Auto Glass America (AGA) and its owner Charles Isaly.

Those filings include an order on two order of protection motions from Auto Glass Inspection Services (AGIS), Allstate’s withdrawal of its motion for a mediation deadline extension and a joint motion requesting an extension to the discovery deadline.


Protective Order Motions


According to court documents, AGIS filed two motions for protection orders following the defendant’s request for additional information about “non-party AGIS and its relationship with Allstate.” The presiding judge denied the second motion as moot, the first motion was granted in part and denied in part.


“AGIS’s request for protective order against the subpoena is granted to the extent that the topics of inquiry and requests for production listed in the Subpoena are narrowed and limited solely to questions and documents related to Robert Kirk’s or Frank Egger’s windshield replacement claims addressed in AGA’s third and fifth counterclaims,” a portion of the order reads. “In other words … AGA is limited to asking questions and obtaining documents related solely to Robert Kirk’s or Frank Egger’s windshield replacement claims.”


The judge noted that, in the event a topic of inquiry or request for production cannot be limited, AGA is prohibited from addressing those topics. The judge denied AGIS’s second motion for a protective order in all other respects.
