Subrogation & Law Blog-Cozen & O'Connor Posted on July 12, 2010 by John R. Slattery

Subrogation professionals should be aware of a recent opinion in New York where computer fire modeling utilized by the defendant’s expert was held to be inadmissible.   In Santos v. State Farm Fire & Casualty Co., No. 000790/07 (N.Y.Sup. Ct. Jun. 28, 2010), a trial court held that the defendant had not presented sufficient evidence that computer fire modeling was generally accepted as reliable in the fire investigation community.
