The Eighth Circuit affirmed entry of summary judgment in favor of an insurance client in a Kansas City federal court case. The Eighth Circuit found that the federal court did not err in concluding that the agreement in question had a “follow-the-settlements” provision; did not err in finding another state’s six-year limitations period barred plaintiff’s challenges to claims submitted by defendant; nor did it err in finding the statute had not been tolled. The federal court case, which resulted in a $36 million dollar payment for BSCR’s client, was handled by BSCR attorney James R. Jarrow. The appeal was handled jointly by BSCR and another firm.
