Last November, I wrote a post, A Chance For Mississippi Courts To Get It Right, about a very important case that will be argued before the Mississippi Supreme Court next Tuesday, June 9, 2009, at 1:30 p.m. I know many must think that justice sometimes moves at a snail’s pace because six months have passed since I first wrote about the case and we are only arguing the appeal. Corban v USAA is important to all Mississippi policyholders, and the arguments can be watched live over the Internet.
Here are some of the Briefs:
- Corban Initial brief
- Amicus brief filed on behalf of United Policyholders by the Merlin Law Group (You do not want to miss my prose)
- USAA Answer brief
- Corban Reply brief
- Amicus brief of Allstate Insurance Company in support of USAA
- Amicus brief of Jim Hood, Attorney General of the State of Mississippi
- Amicus brief of Nationwide Insurance in support of USAA
- Amicus brief of NAMIC and State Farm in support of USAA
Corban raises the most important issues regarding causation and burdens of proof which have been at issue in the Mississippi Katrina cases. Finally, the highest Court in this fair state will hear the issues so important to its citizens. It will be a landmark decision no matter how it is decided.
