Katrina NFIP Whistleblower Suit Proceeds Against State Farm

Whistleblowers Cori and Kerri Rigsby — former insurance adjusters — have sued State Farm Insurance Company for allegedly causing false claims to be submitted to the federal government for damage to homes caused by Hurricane Katrina that rightfully should have been paid by State Farm.  This week U.S. District Judge L.T. Senter Jr permitted the Rigsbys’ suit to go forward and has ordered that State Farm must comply with discovery requests related to certain claims filed through the National Flood Insurance Program.
