Supreme Court May Hear Allstate Appeal

May 15th, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

The Florida Supreme Court has set a briefing schedule, inviting Allstate Insurance to submit a brief on why the company thinks the States high court should take jurisdiction in the suspension of its license to write new business. The company had filed a discretionary brief with the court asking it to look at the case. The companys argument is due at noon, May 20th. The state would then have until noon on May 22nd to respond. The order is not a guarantee that the court will hear the case. Allstate says it has already turned over all of the documents the state was seeking and that it has submitted a Certification that it will continue to cooperate. Both were conditions for the state to allow the Company to begin writing new business again. The company and its agents have been forbidden from writing new policies since 9:30 Wednesday morning.
