DANIEL F. DEY, Plaintiff - Appellant v. STATE FARM MUTUAL AUTOMOBILE INSURANCE COMPANY, Defendant - Appellee
One day after the jury awarded damages of $229,400, the appellee, an insurer, filed a motion to amend the judgment under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 59(e). The insurer argued to the district court that the appellant’s recovery was limited to $100,000 because his basis for recovery was his uninsured motorist policy which had a limit of $100,000. The district court granted the motion. A Rule 59(e) motion may be used to correct a manifest error of law or fact. The district court’s judgment is affirmed. DEY v. STATE FARM MUTUAL AUTOMOBILE INSURANCE CO., 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, No. 14-60300, 6/17/15.
