U.S. District Court Judge Carlos E. Mendoza denied Allstate’s request to dismiss Auto Glass America LLC (AGA) and its owner Charles Isaly’s counterclaim. Florida’s Middle District Court filed the document today in regard to the Allstate vs. AGA and Isaly lawsuit. According to Mendoza, the motion to dismiss is now “moot” due to the filed amended counterclaim.
Last December Allstate filed the suit and alleges AGA and Isaly, “tried to pressure Allstate’s insureds into hiring them 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.”
The court also announced a mediation date, set to take place in March 2020 for the lawsuit. Look to future glassBYTEs editions for more updates.
