Safelite Group, Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen and Thomas Leonardi, state insurance commissioner, have “agreed in principle on the major terms of a settlement and have begun preparing definitive documents memorializing the agreement,” the parties’ attorneys have reported to the U.S. District Court of Connecticut.
Binswanger Glass, Action Auto Glass, Auto Glass of New England and Goulet Glass, doing business as Sullivan Glass, have all filed motions to quash document and witness subpoenas from Columbus, Ohio-based Safelite over Connecticut’s anti-steering law.
Safelite’s attorneys told the panel of three judges for the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit Court that the company is following the new Connecticut law, PA 13-67, and that it hasn’t changed the amount of referrals.
Safelite’s attorneys have filed a brief in the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, claiming that the U.S. District Court “erred in denying the motion for a preliminary injunction” and asked that the lower court’s order to be reversed. The company wants the Appellate Court to halt enforcement of Connecticut’s anti-steering law—PA 13-67.
Several automotive glass repair and replacement company owners are calling the judge’s decision to deny Safelite’s motion for a preliminary injunction in the Connecticut anti-steering case a “victory.” Safelite had asked the Connecticut U.S. District Court to put enforcement of PA 13-67 on hold while it challenges the new anti-steering law in the courts.
Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen and Thomas Leonardi, commissioner of the state insurance department, deny that Public Act 13-67 (an Act Concerning Automotive Glass Work) “unconstitutionally prohibits plaintiffs’ [Safelite’s] commercial speech or otherwise violates the plaintiffs’ constitutional rights” in court documents filed in the U.S. District Court of Connecticut. Judge Janet Bond Arterton also scheduled oral arguments for the case to take place on December 2, 2013 at 3 p.m. in Courtroom Two of Connecticut U.S. District Court.
