RICO claim against State Farm, settled for $250 million.
Mark Hale, Laurie Loger and Todd Shadle, all former State Farm insureds were court
appointed class representatives in Avery vs State Farm which resulted in a $1.181 billion
jury verdict in 1999 in Illinois state court. Therein, the issue was State Farm's designating
aftermarket crash parts for its insured's vehicle repairs rather than using parts made by the original
manufacturer as required by the insurance policy.
