EAST ST. LOUIS — An insurance firm is suing John Beck, Joyce Beck, Stephen Beck, and Lisa Beck, citing alleged breach of contract.
Auto-Owners Insurance Company filed a complaint on May 17 in U.S. District Court of the Southern District of Illinois against the defendants, claiming that they have demanded $100,000 more than they are entitled to under an underinsured motorist provision. Auto-Owners says in the suit that it owes the defendants $200,000, not the $300,000 they are allegedly demanding.
The plaintiff seeks just allocation among the defendant the undisputed $200,000, a declaration that the plaintiff has satisfied all obligations under the policy by paying $200,000 to the defendants, and any further relief as this court sees fit. It is represented by Jeffrey T. Reel of Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith LLP in Edwardsville.
