Redmann Law Victories Make National News
New Orleans (AP) – A jury on Wednesday sided with a south Louisiana couple in the first federal trial in Louisiana against State Farm Insurance Cos. over Hurricane Katrina.
John Redmann, attorney for plaintiffs Michael and Judy Kodrin and a State Farm spokesman estimated the award would be about $350,000.
New Orleans (AP) – CitiMortgage Inc. lost its right to collect from a Chalmette couple who defaulted after Hurricane Katrina because it lost their mortgage — and must pay them $10,000 for years of harassing phone calls, a state district judge has ruled.
Company phone logs and the testimony of David Michael Cefalu and Rebekah Anna Cantrell Cefalu “clearly establish a pattern of continued, persistent and excessive phone calls” even after they told CitiMortgage to call their lawyer, Judge Robert Buckley wrote.
