SC: October 2017 Oral Arguments before Ky Supreme Court

Only one day this month - Thursday Oct. 26. A good one to catch either streaming or live is GEICO v. Houchens class action on car insurers terminating PIP benefits on paper medical reviews. Should be many in the audience.

A few issues this month include:

  • “Insurance. MVRA. KRS 304.39-270-(1). The question is whether a Kentucky motor vehicle reparations obligor may terminate their insured’s basic reparations benefits premised purely upon “paper reviews” of medical records not tendered for court review.” [This case is scheduled for oral argument on 10/26/2017 at 9:00 am.   Important issue of paper reviews used to deny no-fault PIP benefits.  You should earn CLE for this one for appellate advocacy with the following attorneys involved:Attorneys for Appellant: Edward H. Stopher and Todd Patrick Greer
    Attorneys for Appellees: Kevin Crosby Burke, C. David Ewing, Jamie Kristin Neal, and Damon Blake Willis
  • “DUI. Indigent Defendants. KRS 534.040. KRS 189A.010. Issues include whether the district court properly imposed a fine on an indigent defendant convicted of a DUI.”  10/26
  • “KRS 15.520. Kentucky Law Enforcement Foundation Program. Due Process. Termination of deputy sheriff. The issue is whether a sheriff who has elected to receive funds pursuant to KRS 15.520, is required to follow the due process requirements of the statute for the termination of a deputy sheriff even though there is no deputy sheriff review board in the county.” 10/26
