Law Week Colorado Quoted Chris Mosley Regarding Colorado Supreme Court Insurance Litigation Case

Sherman & Howard attorney Chris Mosley was quoted in Law Week Colorado regarding the insurance dispute case of Thompson v. Catlin. On December 10, the Colorado Supreme Court ruled that plaintiffs who were seeking damages from insurance companies in garnishment proceedings are entitled to prejudgment interest on garnished awards.

The litigation sought the recovery of an $800,000 securities arbitration award on behalf of two investors from the insurer of a securities company that had gone out of business.  Sherman & Howard was able to secure a substantial portion of that award through the garnishment proceeding.

“[We are] pleased with the court’s decision as it provides judgment creditors a valuable tool to collect judgments from a judgment debtor’s insurer”, said Chris Mosley, who represented the petitioners. “The decision is the latest in a recent line from our Supreme Court directing insurers to pay claims promptly and stop playing games.”
