ST. LOUIS — A motor carrier is suing a Nebraska licensed insurer, citing alleged breach of duty.

JS Dunnigan Truck Line LLC filed a complaint on Dec. 28 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Berkshire Hathaway Homestate Insurance Company alleging that the insurer negligently made an inaccurate filing with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration for the plaintiff.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that as a result of the revocation of plaintiff's motor carrier registration, its driver received a citation on June 7, 2017. As further result, it was no longer able to operate as a motor carrier, was forced to hire a third party to to complete transporting its load, and has incurred other incidental costs, fees and expenses. 

The plaintiff holds Berkshire Hathaway Homestate Insurance Company responsible because the defendant allegedly canceled the plaintiff's renewal policy and its federal motor carrier filing without its knowledge.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury; and seeks damages in excess of $25,000, plus costs and interest, and all other relief that are just and proper. It is represented by Ted L. Perryman and Steven Ahillen of Roberts Perryman PC in St. Louis.
