NEW ORLEANS - An insurance agent did not have a duty to properly advise homeowners of the correct amount of insurance coverage needed, a Louisiana federal judge ruled April 14, dismissing the claim for negligent procurement of insurance against the agent in a hurricane coverage dispute (Gale Hernandez, et al. v. State Farm General Insurance Co., et al., No. 13-5783, E.D. La.; 2014 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 51221).
