Rarely do I feel sorry for an insurance company, but.... 8O this doesnt sound fair.

He was a hit and run lover. Not a hit run driver.

If she had gone home with him would his homeowner's insurance be liable? Or her's if they had gone to her place?

If they had "gotten a room" would the motel be sued?

I like posting absurd news that could just as easily go in the entertainment section.

In this case I savor the sweet, sweet tears of a large company over arbitration that they regularly abuse. It is after all their choice for resolving disputes per the insurance contract. They just counted on winning every time.

Revenge appeal? Okay.

Trouble is it will now mean that car insurance companies will force you to do to avoid this in the future. Force you to reveal that you have herpes, or aids, before you can get a policy.

Well yes...because it sets a strange legal precedent.

She sued his car insurer not because he was a hit-and-run driver, but because he was a hit-and-run lover!

It would mean that Wilson Pickett could now hold Ford Motor Company responsible if Mustang Sally doesnt slow her Mustang down!

I'm sure you'll agree the only real news comes from FOX.

What happened to all those scandal rags that used to be by the checkout?
Ones with headlines about two- headed Alien babies and recent Elvis sightings.
Now that was real news. :D

It's judgements like this that rapidly discredit the authority of the courts.

The insurance company owners need HPV in their brain to listen to this judgment.

Arbitration is not a lawsuit. That's the point. Large businesses force you into this process with contract conditions, where this process heavily favors them. It didn't go their way this time.

Hmm, should I 'save page as' in the Vehicles folder because it involves a vehicle or in the Sociology folder because it involves a social disease or in the Health folder because it involves a virus?

From Opinion_WD84722.pdf, footnote page 2;

Quote:
and determined “there was no coverage” because the “damages claimed did not arise out of the normal use of the vehicle.”


At this point on the calendar there's probably enough documentation of people having sex in vehicles to show that sexual encounters are a fairly normal and common use of vehicles.
