Lance defended a direct-action lawsuit against an insurance company, first filed and defended by Lance in Franklin County, Arkansas, and later dismissed and re-filed in Pulaski County. This case involved a young boy who entered the insured-church’s attic, unsupervised, and fell through the attic floor and onto the first floor ground below. Plaintiffs sued the church and its insurance company , based on the Plaintiff’s injuries, resulted in complex medical issues of a permanent nature.

Outcome: Defendant’s Motion to Dismiss or, in the Alternative, for Summary Judgment (re: procedural grounds in connection with a defective summons), was granted, and the case against Lance’s client was dismissed, with prejudice.
