NEW ORLEANS (AP) A jury on Wednesday sided with a south Louisiana couple in the first federal trial in Louisiana against State Farm Insurance Cos. over Hurricane Katrina damage.
An attorney for plaintiffs Michael and Judy Kodrin and a State Farm spokesman estimated the award would be about $350,000. But U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier said he'd have to calculate the amount and did not immediately issue a finding.
"We're just happy it's over and that the jury was fair and just," Judy Kodrin said, adding later: "It never was about the money for us. It was about justice more than anything."
