A group of former insurance adjusters filed suit (see full text of the complaint) last year accusing insurers of misrepresenting claims to the National Flood Insurance Program to limit their financial losses in Katrina’s aftermath. The suit was legally required to remain under seal while federal officials reviewed the case. A federal judge in New Orleans unsealed the suit last week, after U.S. Attorney, David Dugas decided that his Baton Rouge-based office will not intervene.
