Federal judge scolds State Farm

Senter has issued an opinion that grants a request for relief to policyholders’ attorneys Lumpkin & Reeves of Biloxi, who represent Craig and Carol Balius. They are suing the insurance company over uncovered Katrina damage.

Senter said State Farm has misconstrued his opinion in another case and is wrongfully withholding pre-trial discovery, or company information requested by Lumpkin and Reeves to prepare the Balius’ case.
