In the case of State Farm Fire & Cas. Co. v. Worontzoff, No. 2:20-CV-839-GAM (E.D. Pa. Aug. 6, 2020 McHugh, J.), the court granted an insurance company’s Motion to Strike an injured party’s Motion for Summary Judgment in the carrier’s declaratory judgment action seeking to establish that it was not obligated to provide coverage to its insured for injuries allegedly caused to the injured party.
The court found that the injured party’s interest, that is a plaintiff’s interest, in seeking the availability of insurance proceed was not sufficient to warrant intervention as a right under F. R.C.P. 24 or as a necessary party under F. R.C.P. 19(a)(1)(2).
