  • In July 2014, Hungeling Law won a motion for summary judgment on an insurance coverage dispute in a massive bank failure case in the United States District Court for the District of Puerto Rico, which preserved $100 million in insurance for the former officers and directors of Westernbank. Read the Court's opinion W. Holding Co. Inc. v. AIG Ins. Co., 11-CV-2271-GAG, 2014 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 94005 (July 9, 2014).
  • In March 2013, Hungeling Law won a motion to dismiss an insurance declaratory judgment action filed against several former officers and directors of a failed bank in Georgia in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Georgia. Read the Court's opinion OneBeacon Midwest Ins. Co. v. FDIC as Receiver for Habersham Bank, No. 2:12-CV-0106-RWS, 2013 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 44237 (March 28, 2013). The Court also denied the insurance company's motion for reconsideration at 2014 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 27870 (March 5, 2014).

  • Successfully defended several companies in two lawsuits filed by State Farm Insurance Company in which State Farm sought to deny coverage for policyholders who were sued in a consumer class action lawsuit. The trial courts in the Superior Court of Chatham County, Georgia and United States District Court for the Southern District of Georgia both ruled that State Farm had to defend the policyholder, thus preserving the clients' access to $20 million of insurance coverage. Read both of those opinions.
  • Achieved dismissal of a several related case involving claims of investment fraud and RICO violations asserted against a general partner in a real estate development company
