Malcolm McPherson prevailed in a matter involving an appeal to the New Jersey Superior Court Appellate Division. Plaintiff filed suit claiming serious injuries arising out of a motorcycle accident. Plaintiff sought underinsured motorist (“UIM”) coverage under a policy which provided liability and UIM coverage for operation of his pickup truck and other four-wheeled vehicles. Malcolm successfully had the matter dismissed by way of summary judgment motion at the trial level. Plaintiff appealed, claiming that the relevant policy language was ambiguous and unclear. The Appellate Division affirmed the trial court in an unpublished opinion, finding that the dismissal was warranted given the clear language of the policy and the sound reasoning of the trial court.
