EAST ST. LOUIS — An insurer is suing John Beck, Joyce Beck, Stephen Beck and Lisa Beck, New York residents, seeking to deny a request for $100,000 in underinsured motorist coverage.
Auto-Owners Insurance Company filed a complaint on May 17 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois against the defendants.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff is prepared to pay the defendants an undisputed $200,000, but asserts it does not owe an additional $100,000.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks declaration that the maximum owed to defendants under the policy is $200,000 and a declaration that payment of $200,000 satisfies all obligations owed under the policy. It is represented by Jeffrrey T. Reel of Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith LLP in Edwardsville.
