Automobile Insurer Successfully Reverses $1B Jury Verdict

An automobile insurer successfully defended a purported nationwide class action challenging the specification of generic replacement parts for repairs (rather than the more expensive parts offered by the car makers). Our firm served several roles in representing the automobile insurer, including acting as “issue preservation” counsel during a lengthy jury trial, arguing directed verdict motions, acting as lead counsel at the jury instruction conference and acting as an appellate counsel in obtaining the reversal of a billion-­dollar judgment. Avery v. State Farm Mut. Auto. Ins. Co., 216 Ill. 2d 100 (2005)
