Allstate Insurance Company vs. Pincheira
Court: New Mexico Court of Appeals
Case Number: 22,760
UP opposes Allstate’s attempts to shield important documents regarding claims handling practices based on trade secrecy status. Court should allow discovery of internal documents pertaining to manner of handling claims (claims Core Process Redesign.) Secrecy allows corporate misdeeds by insurers to continue unchecked.
UP’s brief was written pro bono by Daniel J. O’Friel, Esq. of the Law Offices of Daniel J. O’Friel, and by William F. Merlin, Jr., Esq. and Mary E. Kestenbaum, Esq., of Gunn Merlin, PA.
