“The lawsuit, filed in Hinds County Circuit Court, accuses State Farm of fraud, negligence and breach of contract. Although the lawsuit was filed almost 10 years after Katrina hit in 2005, no statute of limitations applies to the state under its constitution and state law.
The lawsuit says Mississippi paid 6,810 policyholders five times more than State Farm did for Katrina damage.
The state paid a total of $522 million to State Farm policyholders, the lawsuit says, or an average of $76,673.59 per policyholder. State Farm paid the same policyholders $98.7 million, or an average of $14,494.62 per policyholder.”
As if this Fraud were not bad enough:
“In an unrelated case, a federal jury in Gulfport found State Farm had defrauded the National Flood Insurance Program by charging it for damage the company should have covered. Attorneys who worked on the federal case, Maison Heidelberg of Jackson and August Matteis Jr. of Washington, are helping Hood with the state lawsuit.”
