Michigan Students Will Watch Supreme Court Insurance Dispute Case

October 28, 2011

Students from some Thumb communities are going to school at the Michigan Supreme Court.

The court is taking justice on the road Thursday by hearing a case at the Tuscola Technology Center in Caro, 100 miles from the state capital. Students and teachers from at least eight high schools will be in the audience.

The court is taking a look at an insurance dispute. Mona Lisa Frazier of Macomb County broke her ankle while outside her pickup truck, and a jury awarded her $433,000. Allstate Insurance had cut off benefits after claiming that Frazier’s fall was on icy pavement and had nothing to do with her vehicle.

One of the issues is whether Frazier was trying to close the passenger door when she fell.
