On behalf of a national Title Insurer, Bill Sauerwein obtained reversal of a trial court’s judgment against the Insurer. The Missouri Appellate court, Western District, reversed an entry of a judgment for damages against Chicago Title Insurance Company in Appeal Number WD72673 in a case that began as an effort by Chicago Title to correct an error in vesting deeds. Chicago Title was later sued for attorneys fees incurred by the defendant in the action to quiet title. The Appellate court held that Chicago Title was clearly entitled to a reversal on the dispositive issue of causation and that her attorney’s fees and costs were “self-inflicted” expenses and remain her responsibility.
