Kelly et al v. Auto Owners Insurance Company
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER: IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Plaintiffs' motion for designation of a neutral not on the Court's certified list of neutrals is DENIED. (Doc. No. 26 .) Signed by District Judge Audrey G. Fleissig on January 11, 2017. (BRP)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI
JOHN KELLY and LINDA KELLY,
AUTO OWNERS INSURANCE
Case No. 4:16CV01106 AGF
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This insurance coverage case is before the Court on Plaintiffs’ motion for
designation of a neutral not on the Court’s certified list of neutrals. The Court’s Local
Rule permits appointment of an individual not on the list of certified neutrals for good
cause, such as when the neutral has special subject matter expertise germane to a
particular case. See L.R. 16-6.03(B)(2). However, this is a straight-forward case
involving claims for underinsured motorist coverage, and does not appear to require
specialized subject matter expertise not possessed by other neutrals on the Court’s
certified list, and the parties have not offered good cause for such special appointment.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Plaintiffs’ motion for designation of a neutral
not on the Court’s certified list of neutrals is DENIED. (Doc. No. 26.)
AUDREY G. FLEISSIG
UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
