Minnesota Supreme Court Rules In Favor of Livgard & Lloyd Clients

On July 16, 2009, the Minnesota Supreme Court ruled in favor of the firm’s clients in an important case involving the ability of insurance policy holders to assign their insurance benefits for broken auto glass to the company that performs the replacement services. The Supreme Court’s decision reverses two Minnesota Court of Appeals decisions that had invalidated assignments of insurance proceeds. The court of appeals decisions had effectively blocked Minnesota glass companies from holding insurers accountable for the entire amounts owed by the insurers under the terms of their insurance policies. The Supreme Court’s decision is consistent with decisions from virtually every other state in the country that have considered the validity of post-loss assignments of insurance proceeds and is also consistent with Minnesota Statutes which require insurers to make payments to the glass companies.
