After just two hours into a meeting with Allstate, Florida Insurance Commissioner McCarty suspended Allstate’s ability to write new automobile insurance policies in the state. Despite demands to turn over certain documents, Allstate failed to comply stating that the documents the state was demanding were “irrelevant.”
Governor Charlie Crist issued the following statement.
“I applaud Commissioner McCarty for sending a clear message to Allstate Companies and protecting Florida’s consumers. It is clear to me that Allstate must have something to hide if they are unwilling to comply with the Commissioner’s requests. This type of behavior is an unconscionable disregard for this process and their customers.
I am grateful to Commissioner McCarty for taking this bold action today and look forward to further progress through the Senate Select Committee’s work next month.”
