Wiley v. State Farm Fire & Cas. Co., 09-60191

In an action for Hurricane Katrina-related insurance proceeds, summary judgment for defendant-insurer is affirmed where the parties' prior settlement agreement precluded plaintiff's claim because it unambiguously released all Katrina-related claims arising from insured damage known to plaintiff at the time of the settlement.
