Insurance Company Dismissed During Trial
Plaintiff brought a lawsuit against an insurance agent and an insurance company alleging breach of contract, fraud, negligence, negligent supervision, violations of the Tennessee Consumer Protection Act and asking for damages based on the contract, treble damages for violations of the Tennessee Consumer Protection Act, punitive damages and attorney fees. Plaintiff testified and called the insurance agent as her witness. The plaintiff and the agent presented their proof, and all parties had the ability to cross the witnesses for said parties. After her cross examination of plaintiff and the agent, Angela Cirina Kopet requested the dismissal of her insurance company client outlining the reasons plaintiff had failed to prove its case against said company. After a brief recess, the Judge granted the motion dismissing the insurance company with prejudice.
