Another Eastern District Federal Court Decision Holding that Gallagher Household Exclusion Case Applies Retroactively

Another Federal Eastern District Court has ruled that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court decision in Gallagher v. GEICO applies retroactively.

The court in Stockdale v. Allstate, No, 19-845 (E.D. Pa.  June 17, 2019 Beetlestone, J.), basically same holding but with a slightly different rationale than the Eastern District of Pennsylvania Memorandum and Order in Butta v. GEICO decided a few weeks ago.  

Also, in Stockdale, the District Court holds that the application of Gallagher applies back four years from when the suit was filed.

I send thanks to Attorney Scott Cooper of the Schmidt Kramer law firm in Harrisburg, PA for bringing this case to my attention.

I note that Scott and I will be presenting a PBI sponsored Webinar on July 8, 2019 in the Gallagher v. GEICO case and its import on UM/UIM law.   Please click HERE if you would like to register for that CLE program.
