A request for an order of protection filed by Auto Glass Inspection Services Inc. (AGIS) was denied this week, as was a motion to reject a non-party Subpoena Deposition Duces Tecum filed by Allstate. In the ongoing lawsuit between Allstate Insurance Company, Allstate Fire and Casualty Insurance Company, Allstate Indemnity Company and Allstate Property and Casualty Insurance Company (collectively Allstate) and defendants Auto Glass America LLC (AGA) and its owner, Charles Isaly, Allstate requested a court summons ordering the recipient (AGIS) to produce relevant documents for use at trial, according to court filings.
AGA also filed a subpoena against AGIS, alleging the documents requested were not classified as proprietary, though, according to court documents, yesterday AGA withdrew its filing. The Court responded by denying AGIS’s motion for a protection order, declaring it moot.
According to court documents, the protective order motion was filed by AGIS, which is not a party in the ongoing lawsuit. The company is an independent business that is allegedly used by Allstate to inspect and verify damage to its insureds’ windshields, according to its statements in court documents.
