The SFBB trial team wins defense verdict, rejecting plaintiff’s claims seeking $5 million plus punitive damages.

A St Louis jury returned a defense verdict after a hard-fought two week trial. Plaintiff alleged that Spencer Fane’s client, Guardian Life Insurance Company, through its agents, breached a fiduciary duty by failing to ensure payment of the premiums on a life insurance policy issued to her deceased husband pending the issuance of a replacement life insurance policy. Spencer Fane was brought into the case in August after the case had been in litigation for six years. Spencer Fane eliminated major claims through a summary judgment, setting the stage for the trial.
