SLABBED – Rigsby qui tam hearing today

At 10am this morning, Judge Senter will begin hearing evidence in the qui tam case filed by whistleblowers Cori and Kerri Rigsby, ex rel Rigsby v State Farm.

Judge Senter has limited the scope of the hearing to two issues:

To meet their burden of proof on their pending dispositive motions, the movants (the defendants) must show that there is no genuine issue of material fact and that the McIntosh flood insurance payments were justified, as a matter of law. If the defendants meet this burden of proof I will dismiss this action on its merits.

I am interested in the Relators’ first hand knowledge of the conspiracy they have alleged…I am particularly interested in evidence that there was insufficient flood damage to the McIntosh property to justify payment of the applicable SFIP limits.
