The Supreme Court of Oregon has answered a certified question from a federal district court and found that a provision in an insurer’s auto policies that limited payouts for uninsured motorists claims to the maximum amount allowed by a single policy cannot be enforced because they do not comply with state law. The case is Batten v. State Farm, 368 Ore. 538 (September 17, 2021). 

The lawsuits stemmed from four separate crashes involving Travis Batten, Cesar Rivera, Lori Chrisholm, and lastly, John Wesley Counts who was killed when he was struck by a vehicle while walking.
