Retroactive rescissionSeptember 25, 2020

Omphil Care, Inc. v Pearl Holding Group Managing Gen. Agent for Ocean Harbor Cas. Ins. Co. 2020 NY Slip Op 50946(U)(App. Term 2d Dept. 2020)

“It is undisputed by the parties that Florida law applies. Inasmuch as defendant’s cross motion papers demonstrated that a rescission notice was sent to the insured, and that defendant had returned, or tendered, all premiums paid to the insured within a reasonable period of time after defendant’s discovery of the grounds for rescinding the policy, defendant established, prima facie, that it had voided the policy ab initio pursuant to Florida law (see W.H.O. Acupuncture, P.C. v Infinity Prop. & Cas. Co., 36 Misc 3d 4, 6-7 [App Term, 2d Dept, 2d, 11th & 13th Jud Dists 2012], citing Leonardo v State Farm Fire and Cas. Co., 675 So 2d 176, 179 [Fla Dist Ct App, 4th Dist 1996]).”

I love how attorneys when told Florida law applies do not put in any effort in to beating back the Defendant’s motion. Has anyone checked out what a Florida attorney fee in a PIP case is?
