Pretzel & Stouffer Attorneys Obtain Substantial Modification of Judgment on Appeal for Insurer in Fifth District

Robert Chemers and Jonathan Federman successfully argued on appeal for a modification of a judgment against its client in a stacking case in Southern Illinois.

In a published Opinion, the Appellate Court, 5th District agreed that coverage within a policy of insurance could not be stacked four separate times. The Court agreed that an amended Declarations and a second amended Declarations do not create an ambiguity in the policy as it is clear that neither was in effect at the time of the accident. The Court modified the judgment by reducing the award by 50%.
