Favorable Decision In Automobile Coverage Matter

John Craver, John Lebsack and Cati Shadakofsky recently obtained a favorable decision in an automobile coverage matter arising out of a road-rage incident.  The trial court granted summary judgment in favor of the insurer, concluding that the claimant was not “using” the vehicle as a means of transportation as contemplated by the policy when he was hit by the other vehicle.  The insurer prevailed at the court of appeals and the supreme court denied his petition for certiorari and affirmed the judgment in favor of the insurer.
