On February 7, 2017 Weg & Myers successfully obtained a jury verdict in New York Supreme Court Sullivan County in favor of its client, Swan Lake Resort, against Swan Lake's insurance broker, Defendant T&H Brokers, a subsidiary of Alliant Insurance Services. With the inclusion of pre-judgment interest, it is estimated that the verdict will exceed $3.7 million. The case centered upon allegations that the broker failed to report to Swan Lake's property carrier that Swan Lake had suffered a loss as a result of Hurricane Irene. The carrier had successfully denied the claim and extricated itself from liability as a result of its receiving untimely notice of the loss. The broker claimed that it never received any notice from Swan Lake about this loss until February 2012, at the time that the insured changed insurance brokers. The jury, after reviewing all of the evidence, including various phone records, as well as hearing the testimony of representatives from Swan Lake and T&H Brokers, rejected the insurance broker's defense and returned a verdict in favor of Swan Lake after deliberating for less than one hour. The case was tried by Dennis T. D'Antonio and assisted by Joshua L. Mallin and Amanda Peterson.
The Swan Lake verdict represents the fourth trial verdict obtained by Weg and Myers in favor of its clients over a 12 month period. The cumulative amount of these verdicts total $35.5 million.
