Superstorm Sandy Case Languishes As SDNY  Judge Asking of Umpire Says Gimme A Break

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 25 – Simon and Lori Zarour sued Chubb and Pacific Indemnity Company for not paying out on insurance policies for damage from Superstorm Sandy on October 29, 2021.

But it has been years, and the case has stalled.            

   On October 25 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York  Judge John P. Cronan held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.

  Judge Cronan closely questioned plaintiffs' lawyer Tomas Espinosa of North Bergen, New Jersey about the delay, once saying "Give me a break."

 But Espinosa kept advocating, explaining the delay in appraisal and arguing against the case bein dismissed for failure to prosecute. 

 Judge Cronan, aiming to decide things on the merit, did not dismiss - but did order letter(s) about recommending an umpire, by October 29.

The case is  Zarour et al. v. Chubb & Son, Inc., et al., 15-cv-2663 (Cronan)
