On behalf of a national title insurance carrier, John Hein secured judgment in favor of his client following a hearing on a motion for summary judgment against a title insurance agent for failure to accurately discover and report instruments of record affecting title to property according to the terms of the agency agreement. As recoupment for the losses suffered by the insurance carrier in defending and curing the underlying claim resulting from the agent’s error, the court awarded it approximately $218,000.00, representing the entire amount of the underwriter’s losses which included attorneys’ fees, litigation expenses, and costs of settlement negotiations.
