Past Results

  • Pierce v. Grinnell Select Ins. Co., 2021 WL 2254998 (E.D. Mo. 2021). Mr. Meyer was able to secure summary judgment on behalf of Grinnell Select Insurance Company holding that the definition of “underinsured motor vehicle” contained in the Grinnell Select insurance policy at issue was unambiguous and precluded UIM coverage where the tortfeasor’s liability coverage limits were equal to the subject policy’s UIM coverage limit.
  • Educ. Realty Tr., Inc. v. Bokal Com. Construction, LLC, et al., 1622–CC00702–01 (Cir. Ct. of Saint Louis City, Mo). Mr. Meyer served as second chair alongside partner John Cooney and obtained a complete defense verdict during three–day jury trial in favor of plumbing contractor client against the Plaintiff’s construction defect claims. Mr. Meyer and Mr. Cooney were able to persuade the jury that an interior water pipe which broke and resulted in property damage in excess of $300,000 to the Plaintiff’s mixed-use property development was not caused by the client’s workmanship.
  • McDuffy v. Parkside Commons, LLC, et al., Case No. 16SL–CC01660 (Cir. Ct. of Saint Louis County, Mo). Mr. Meyer was able to obtain summary judgment in favor of his client, a landlord and property owner, against claims brought against the client by its tenant that was attacked by another tenant’s dog. Mr. Meyer successfully argued that a landlord, such as his client, had no duty and cannot be liable for the injuries to the tenant since the landlord did not own, possess, or harbor the animal involved in the attack.
