Summary Judgment for Insurance Agent in Fraud and Negligence Action

Obtained summary judgment in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania on behalf of a life insurance agent in a fraud and negligence action. Our client was alleged to have forged certain policy documents in an effort to "churn" the existing policies the plaintiffs possessed into additional policies rather than increase the amount of coverage of the original policies. The plaintiffs failed to establish any evidence whatsoever that any of the signatures were forged. Additionally, despite having knowledge of all of the issues that served as the basis for their complaint, the plaintiffs waited over three years before filing suit. The focus of our motion was the applicability of the "discovery rule," which barred all of the plaintiffs’ claims.
