Mealey's (July 28, 2015, 10:33 AM EDT) -- KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Missouri federal judge on July 24 partly denied summary judgment in favor of an insurance agent in a dispute over flood coverage for an insured’s basement, finding that federal law does not preempt the negligent misrepresentation claim and there is a genuine dispute as to the material facts surrounding the agent’s alleged negligent misrepresentation (Catherine Lynn Pittman, et al. v. Farmers Fire Insurance Exchange, et al., No. 13-380, W.D. Mo., Western Div.; 2015 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 96707).
