Safelite Group and Safelite Solutions are in settlement discussions with the Minnesota Commerce Commissioner. Safelite Group had sued the commissioner and asked the U.S. District Court of Minnesota for a preliminary injunction to enjoin and declare invalid enforcement of a Minnesota statute which excludes “Safelite from doing business in Minnesota without the opportunity for a hearing.”
In its lawsuit, Safelite referred to a settlement agreement between the Minnesota Department of Commerce, Insurance Division and Auto Club Group that provides for the Auto Club Group to pay a civil penalty of $150,000 and “cease and desist from using Safelite Solutions, or any other subsidiary of Safelite Group Inc. as its administrator of automobile glass claims in Minnesota,” according to the settlement agreement.
The parties have held two settlement conferences before a U.S. Magistrate Judge in the U.S. District Court of Minnesota.
“The settlement conference was held and continued,” according to a court filing.
The judge has not issued any new decisions in the case.
