Farmers Insurance Dismisses Case Against Cook County Municipalities

Hot off the presses today, Farmers Insurance has voluntarily dismissed its lawsuit against 99 Cook County municipalities and other units of local government.  We posted about the case last month here.  You may recall that Farmers Insurance had filed lawsuits against hundreds of governmental entities in Illinois claiming that the governments were at fault for flooding that resulted in claims paid out by Farmers Insurance.  It isn't clear whether Farmers will re-file the case, continue their litigation in other courts, or decided to dismiss all of its cases.  We will keep you posted.
