1:06-CV-218, 2009 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 54717
(N.D. Miss. June 29, 2009)
On August 27, 2005, the Rocks’ home and two vehicles were destroyed by a fire. The Rocks had a homeowner’s and auto insurance policy with Guideone Mutual Insurance Company. Following the Rocks’ loss, the Rocks filed claims with their insurer for damage to their home, damage to the contents of their home, and vehicle damage.
On July 31, 2006 Guideone denied the Rocks’ insurance claims. Guideone denied the claims based on alleged material misrepresentations regarding Mr. Rock’s criminal history on the homeowner’s insurance policy application, and the Rocks’ failure to comply with their contractual duties throughout the claim investigations, such as concealment regarding their claims, intentional acts, and failure to produce their children for examinations under oath.
