Melissa Bailey and Fred Valz Prevail in Declaratory Judgment Action

Melissa Bailey and Fred Valz recently won summary judgment in a declaratory judgment action related to a wrongful death action. Melissa and Fred argued that the insured made a material misrepresentation in failing to include her adult resident son on her insurance application, so the policy did not provide coverage to the son who purportedly caused the death of the claimant. The Superior Court of Chatham County agreed, granting summary judgment in favor of our insurer client.
