Travelers appeals chiropractic class certification
MOUNT VERNON - Travelers Casualty and Surety has petitioned the Fifth District appeals court in Mount Vernon to review an Oct. 14 order of Madison County Circuit Judge Daniel Stack certifying a class action of the Lakin Law Firm.
Lakin client Coy Chiropractic Health Center sued Travelers in 2005, alleging it improperly reduced payouts to health care providers for treatments of accident victims.
Stack has allowed key issues to remain secret, and the Fifth District will do the same.
Upon receiving the file from Madison County, the Fifth District placed 2,010 pages under seal on a motion from both sides.
Robert Schmieder and Jeff Millar of the Lakin firm in Wood River and Timothy Campbell of Godfrey represent Coy Chiropractic.
Troy Bozarth of Edwardsville represents Travelers, along with Chicago lawyers Robert Johnson, Jeffrey Lennard, Steven Levy and Lisa Lilly.
