LPGM Partner successfully obtained pre-answer dismissal.



LPGM Partner Yale Glazer successfully obtained pre-answer dismissal of all claims against its insurer client in the Eastern District of New York based on the policy’s suit limitations provision. The Court also adopted defendant’s argument in rejecting Plaintiff’s request to amend its complaint 1) to add as a defendant its insurance broker, which would have destroyed diversity jurisdiction, and 2) to assert a cause of action for breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing as both duplicative of the breach of contract claim and futile.
