$795,000 Recovery in Title Insurance Dispute

April 21, 2016

Joe Kingma’s client—a north Georgia real estate investment company—acquired several parcels of land in Dawson County, GA. When a dispute arose with another developer regarding ownership of the property, our client submitted a claim on its owner’s title insurance policy. But the insurance company refused to defend any of the claims, and it hired an international law firm to file a declaratory judgment action against our client in federal court. American Pioneer Title Ins. Co. v. Mountainview Development Co., Inc., N.D. Ga., 2:03-CV-0133-WCO. After substantial discovery, our clients received $795,000 under an agreement reached at mediation.
