Judge: Misrepresentations On Application Submitted By Agent Not Voidable

Mealey's (August 26, 2015, 1:18 PM EDT) -- BATON ROUGE, La. — A federal judge in Louisiana on Aug. 24 denied an insurance company’s motion for summary judgment in a suit in which it seeks an order declaring a general commercial policy void ab initio, after finding that an insurance agent’s completion of an application containing alleged misrepresentations creates a genuine issue of material fact as to whether the defendant intended to deceive the company (Century Surety Company v. Bassam Nafel, No. 14-101-JWD-RLB, M.D. La.; 2015 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 111575).
