Pacheco v. Shelter Mut. Ins. Co., No. 08-1046

In an action for insurance proceeds arising out of a car accident, summary judgment for defendant-insurer is reversed where the policy's exclusion of resident relatives who own a vehicle from Uninsured Motorist/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM) coverage violated Colorado public policy and thus there were issues of fact regarding whether defendant properly advised and offered UM/UIM coverage in an amount equal to the bodily injury limits for that policy.
