Motion To Remand UIM Claim Back to State Court Denied


In the case of Myers v. State Farm Mut. Auto. Ins. Co., No. 17-3509 (E.D.Pa. Aug. 21, 2017 Surrick, J.), the court denied a Plaintiff's motion to remand a federal court UIM claim back to the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas.

In its Motion for Remand, the Plaintiff contended that the claims presented did not meet the $75,000 federal court jurisdictional limit.

After reviewing the current status of federal law pertaining to motions for remand against the allegations in the Plaintiff's Complaint, the court noted that the record before the court indicated that the Plaintiff could potentially realize a result in excess of $75,000.

As such, the Plaintiff's motion to remand was denied.

I send thanks to Attorney Lucille Bitterman from the Philadelphia law firm of Goldberg, Miller & Rubin for bringing this case to my attention.  Attorney Lori Miller from that firm was the handling defense attorney.
