5th Circuit Ruling: SKG Responds

We are disappointed this particular appellate panel misinterpreted and misapplied established Mississippi law by reversing the well-reasoned ruling of Judge Senter, who has been a Mississippi State and Federal Court Judge for over 40 years and is well-versed in the issues of Mississippi insurance law. We are confident the Mississippi Supreme Court would have affirmed Judge Senter’s ruling if it had been given the opportunity. This ruling is particularly disappointing given the fact this panel did not even have jurisdiction to hear Nationwide’s appeal in the first place. We are still studying the opinion but plan to appeal this panel’s ruling.

However, this ruling will have no effect on our remaining cases pending in Mississippi State and Federal Courts because all of the damage in those cases was caused exclusively by wind before any water arrived. We look forward to continuing to advance the cases of thousands of Mississippi families in this and other courts.
