JOHN DOE, ET AL
IN RE: Imperial Fire & Casualty Insurance Company; - Defendant; Applying For Supervisory and/or Remedial Writs, Parish of Orleans, First City Court Parish of Orleans, No. 2014-02602; to the Court of Appeal, Fourth Circuit, No. 14-C-1263.
John L. Weimer, Bernette J. Johnson, Jeannette Theriot Knoll, Greg G. Guidry, Marcus R. Clark, Jefferson D. Hughes, III, Scott J. Crichton,
Granted. The regulations of the Commissioner of Insurance, as contained in LDOI Bulletin 08-02, provide for a box on the UM selection form which the insurer may use for policy information purposes, such as policy number, binder number, application number, etc. The regulations further provide, " [t]his box does not need to be filled in for the form to be properly completed." In light of this provision, the absence of a blank box for the policy number does not create a question of fact concerning the form's validity. Accordingly, the judgment of the district court is reversed, and summary judgment is granted in favor of relator.
