Safelite, Connecticut Attorney General in Negotiations to Settle Anti-Steering Law Dispute

Safelite Group and Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen and Thomas Leonardi, state insurance commissioner, are “discussing whether a consensual resolution of all the issues raised in Safelite’s complaint” is possible.

Negotiations between the parties began shortly after the Second Circuit Court ordered a preliminary injunction to temporary halt enforcement of Public Act 13-67—An Act Concerning Automotive Glass Work.

“[T]he parties have met telephonically on a number of occasions over the last six weeks and continue to engage in negotiations with a goal of fully and finally resolving the case,” attorneys write in their joint status report. “In the meantime, the parties have held both party and third-party discovery in abeyance. The parties are continuing to work to resolve certain issues and, if a settlement is reached, will need to prepare definitive documents memorializing the settlement.

“The parties expect to be able to provide more details, including with respect to timing, at the telephonic status conference that is currently scheduled for October 27, 2014,” they add.

    How hard is it to resolve the fact that it is illegal to say any shop that is affiliated to the TPA.

  2. JCA says:

    Agreed NY. Be in the TPA business or the Glass Business, not both.
