Allstate Wins Bizarre Case on Appeal

The New Mexico Supreme Court came out with an interesting opinion in a very complicated case involving an Allstate lawyer’s attempt to get a recovery against Allstate for the future money Allstate would have paid her as its attorney. Huh? It gets crazier than that, this is actually the fifth written opinion on this case. Incredibly, the lawyer got a $1.8 million recovery against Allstate from a jury. But, alas, the New Mexico high court says not so fast (fast being relative, these events started 13 years ago).

It is too much to summarize, but you can find the opinion here.
