Allstate’s lawsuit against Auto Glass America LLC of Florida (AGA) and its owner, Charles Isaly was referred to mediation last month and both parties requested an extension in deadlines associated with its mediation. According to court documents, the cases’ mediation deadline has been extended to March 30, 2020.
Carlos Mendoza, a U.S. District Court Judge, made the ruling to extend the mediation deadline on April 22, 2019 in Orlando, Fla.
The case mainly focuses on claims alleging AGA and Isaly directed an “extensive and complex scheme to pressure Allstate’s insureds into hiring AGA for windshield replacements, obtaining assignments of benefits (AOBs) from insureds, submitting invoices to Allstate for excessive and unreasonable amounts and fil[ing] over 1,400 lawsuits for recovery of excessive and unreasonable amounts,” a portion of court documents read.
The lawsuit includes ten counts against AGA and Isaly. The counts included tortious interference, violations of Florida’s Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act (FDUTPA), unjust enrichment, and declaratory judgement.
The case’s mediation deadline has been extended until March 30, 2020.
