Wis. Supreme Court rules in car insurance case

Posted Friday, February 7, 2014 --- 10:18 a.m.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin Supreme Court has ruled against State Farm Insurance Co. in a case that deals with tapping uninsured motorists coverage on up to three vehicles to collect more in claims.

The unanimous court Friday upheld a 2013 state appeals court ruling. The case involves a driver who was in an accident and tried to apply uninsured motorists coverage from another vehicle they owned to collect more benefits.

State Farm argued that the other policy couldn't be tapped because of a provision in it barring an insured person from using coverage on one car for another one that is not insured.

But the Supreme Court said Friday that provision was at odds with a law in place then that allowed up to three policies to be used to obtain benefits.
