Anonymous Department of Insurance v. Big Six Auditing Firm
We represented an insurance liquidator who alleged that the auditor defendant was negligent in auditing the financial statements for the insolvent insurance company and that the negligence caused damage to the company's estate. This case involved complex concepts of insurance, accounting, and auditing. The discovery process included the depositions of over 25 witnesses, including 5 expert witnesses. On the first day of trial, the defendant settled for a multi-million dollar sum. During the case, Dinsmore & Shohl prevailed on nearly every motion. Significantly, the trial court allowed Dinsmore's litigation team to pursue damages against the defendant based upon a deepening of the insolvency theory.
