11th Circuit Issues Ruling on PIP EUOs LOL!

Ok, I added the last acroynm.

But PIP lawyers have something to celebrate in that the 11th Circuit, after certifying the legal question to the Florida Supreme Court, has now issued its ruling on whether insurers can require examinations under oath (EUOs) in order to recover PIP benefits:
No.
So that means the case goes back to Judge King:
Accordingly, based upon the Supreme Court of Florida’s answer to our certified question in its opinion filed on June 27, 2013, and attached hereto as “Appendix I”, we reverse the district court’s judgment of dismissal of Nunez’s complaint for failure to state a claim and its order denying her motion for reconsideration and remand this case to the district court for further proceedings consistent with the opinion of the Supreme Court of Florida.
What's next -- judgment on the pleadings?

I'm kidding (I hope!).

  2. Hmm, I feel like all rulings should benefit people over companies. People never have the resources or political clout and need to be helped out, especially in cases like personal injury, medical malpractice, and the like. Beverly MA personal injury lawyers do a good job of helping people out in my home town.
