Judge bars Missouri lawyers from State Farm case

Anthony DeWitt, of the Jefferson City firm, said he and his colleagues are likely to appeal Senter’s ruling.

“The judge is wrong,” he said. “We’re going to exercise every option available to get this judge to recognize the error he’s made.”

The case that Scruggs and the Missouri lawyers filed against State Farm accuses the insurer of defrauding the federal government by inflating flood damage estimates after Katrina.
