Arizona Defendants Plead the Fifth in GEICO Case


...of the high volume of claims under a no-deductible/assignment of benefit paradigm coupled with the short time frame, usually 30 days, allowed for insurers to pay out claims. 


GEICO argues Arizona insurers are open to fraud by glass shops such as A&G that believe their schemes will go undetected because of the high volume of repair and replacement claims and the limited time insurance companies have to conduct an investigation.


In the answer filed with the court, the defendants did admit the U.S. District Court had jurisdiction and the District Court of Arizona was the appropriate venue for the case. The defendants requested a trial by jury. A trial date has not yet been set but the court has scheduled a case management telephone conference among the parties for May 12.
