Florida Fourth DCA rules that defendant’s insurer in motor vehicle negligence case was properly included in judgment for attorney’s fees under Fla. Stat. § 768.79

November 13, 2019, in Davis v. Muro, No. 4D18-2824, the Florida Fourth DCA affirmed a trial court ruling that Nationwide, the insurer of the defendant in a motor vehicle negligence case, was properly included in a judgment by the trial court for attorney’s fees and costs under Fla. Stat. § 768.79. The Fourth DCA cited Government Employees Insurance Co. v. Macedo, 228 So. 3d 1111 (Fla. 2017)(finding that where the costs provisions of the Geico policy at issue were at the very least ambiguous with regard to whether attorney’s fees were covered, any ambiguity had to be interpreted against the insurer).
