Auto body shops make their case to 11th Court of Appeals, say Fla. judge was too strict in dismissal | Repairer Driven News.

Arguing that a Florida court exceeded its authority and applied too high a standard in dismissing their cases against insurers, collision repairers in four states sought help Tuesday in a brief to the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals.

The shops in Missouri, New Jersey, Virginia and Kentucky were among the dozens of repairers nationwide who’d sued insurers in 2014-15 alleging steering and antitrust violations. Their five lawsuits and 17 others filed in a combined 19 states had been placed in the Middle District of Florida to avoid federal court repetition.
