Congratulations to Tower Hill Preferred Insurance Company for obtaining a final summary judgment in its favor. Judge Robert Crown in the Collier County Court found that the insured had already assigned “any and all insurance rights, benefits, and proceeds” to United Reconstruction Group, Inc., before executing the subsequent assignment of benefits to Plaintiff Air Quality Assessors. Accordingly, Judge Crown ruled that Air Quality Assessors had no standing to bring a cause of action against Tower Hill, because the insured had no remaining rights under the policy when he executed the assignment of benefits in favor of Air Quality Assessors. Tower Hill will now be able to move to recover its attorneys’ fees and costs, because Air Quality Assessors had previously rejected a proposal for settlement. The Motion for Summary Judgment was argued by Kelly Fantetti, Esq., in Groelle & Salmon, P.A.’s Sarasota office.
