Panel: Employee Failed To Show Injuries Were Caused By Insurance Broker's Actions

ATLANTA - The 11th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on March 20 affirmed summary judgment to an insurance broker on negligence, tortious interference, breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duty claims because an employee who was assigned an insured's claims against the broker failed to establish that the broker's actions were the proximate cause of his work-related injuries (Jerimah Merritt v. HUB International Southwest Agency Ltd., No. 11-14729, 11th Cir.; 2012 U.S. App. LEXIS 5740).
