Federal Grand Jury Subpoenas Allstate Nationwide over Katrina Claims

Date: May 22, 2007

Allstate Corp. and Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co. have been subpoenaed by a federal grand jury investigating the insurance industry’s handling of Hurricane Katrina claims in Mississippi, the companies said.

Congress last year ordered an investigation into the way insurance claims were handled involving damage caused by Hurricane Katrina after officials said many insurers shifted the financial burden to the government by declaring that flooding, rather than wind, caused the destruction.
