Activity continues in the lawsuit and counterclaim between Allstate Insurance* against Auto Glass America and its owner Charles Isaly (AGA). On September 1, attorneys for William Melton filed an objection regarding Allstate’s subpoena of Melton. The objection says the requests for documentation are broad and, in addition, that Melton “has not worked for Auto Glass America for years and is not in possession of such documents.” The subpoena had requested all types of communication between Melton and Charles Isaly, and with Brad Isaly as well as the communication with Allstate, its insureds, and/or with Safelite Solutions LLC, as well as written policies and training materials from AGA.
The response filed by Melton’s attorney argues against such requests repeatedly stating that Melton has not worked for AGA in years and is not in possession of such materials.
A look at Melton’s LinkedIN profile listed him as a sales representative for Auto Glass America without dates of employment.
Judge Leslie Hoffman ruled against the objections on September 2nd, saying they were not filed as a result of a pending motion and that the objections should be struck as “improvidently filed.”
