After almost six years and a circuitous route through Georgia and federal courts, a class action claiming that several interrelated insurance companies illegally raised health policy premiums on small-group policyholders has settled for more than $14.6 million.

The agreement includes a $3.6 million payday for the plaintiffs’ team: former Gov. Roy E. Barnes and his Barnes Law Group partner John R. Bevis, who served as deputy consumer insurance advocate during the Barnes administration and as a lead attorney on the insurance suit. The team also includes L. Andrew Hollis Jr. and Steven W. Couch of Birmingham’s Hollis & Wright.
