Our office successfully obtained a substantial subrogation recovery in a Federal Interpleader action filed in the State of Utah. A vehicle owned by the employer was struck by a third party. The third-party’s insurer interplead the policy limits with the Federal Court. There were several parties involved all claiming entitlement to the funds that had been deposited with the Court.
Our office filed a Motion for Summary Judgment with the Federal Court arguing that pursuant to § 34A-2-106 after certain statutory offsets our client was entitled to reimbursement of the workers’ compensation benefits it had paid. The Court granted the motion and awarded the majority of the deposited funds to our client.
