The Collaborative Clearinghouse for Lawsuits and Other Claims Against ACE Group Insurance Companies

Busted by the Camera-Phone, ACE's Toe-Tapping Lawyer

July 30, 2010 - In a Florida case,  ACE's lead lawyer Kenneth Engerrand, with ACE in-house counsel John Roth observing, was recently caught "tapping" the foot of an ACE employee witness apparently to "coach" her sworn deposition testimony. The witness was an ACE claims adjuster involved in a large marine claim stemming from hurricane Wilma.

The picture was attached as an exhibit to a fiery motion in Federal Court seeking sanctions against the offending loafer-clad lawyer who was caught under the table by a camera-phone. Apparently with ACE, depositions also need cameras under the table.

[Update - Plaintiffs motion for sanctions was denied.]


See original motion below filed 7/30/2010 in United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida - Key West Division.
