Thomas v Process Equipment, 154 Mich App 78, 397, NW2d 224 (1986), determined that filing a John Doe complaint does not toll the statute of limitations and the filing of an amended complaint naming the defendants does not relate back to the original John Doe complaint, and rejected plaintiff’s argument that the discovery rule should pertain to identification of defendants to toll the statute of limitations.

SIGNIFICANT UNPUBLISHED SUCCESSFUL APPELLATE AND TRIAL COURT DECISIONS
Felty v Skanska USA Building, Inc., unpublished per curiam decision of the Michigan Court of Appeals docket number 297991 (2011), affirming summary disposition in favor of defendant general contractor in wrongful death case for death of a mason who fell from a scaffold, on the basis that the plaintiff failed to prove common work area liability.
Thurman v Pies, Inc., unpublished per curiam decision of the Michigan Court of Appeals docket no. 334821 (2017), in which the Court of Appeals affirmed summary disposition we obtained in the Washtenaw County Circuit Court for an auto/pedestrian accident in which the trial court held the plaintiff was more than 50% at fault in causing the accident and the Court of Appeals affirmed on the basis that there was no evidence including from the plaintiff's expert that there was any negligence on the part of the defendant driver.
Nationwide Property & Casualty Insurance v Brown, 2017 U. S. Dist. LEXIS 61377 (ED Mich, 2017), a declaratory action we filed to determine there was no coverage available for an alleged property loss. We filed a motion for summary judgment which was granted on the basis that there had been misrepresentations made in the application for the policy and that the insured failed to cooperate in the claims process thus voiding the policy. The court further granted our request for reimbursement of in excess of $40,000 in benefits paid to the insured.
Angela Jones v Meemic Insurance Company, Michigan Court of Appeals order (2017), claim for property damage from a house fire. We filed a motion for summary disposition on the basis that the plaintiff's claim was barred because the policy of insurance was rescinded because of misrepresentations made in the application. The trial court denied the motion on the basis that the policy had been renewed before the fire and at the time of the renewal there was no longer a misrepresentation. We appealed to the Michigan Court of Appeals who issued an order reversing the trial court and ordering summary disposition in favor of Meemic on the basis that although the representation was no longer false at the time of the renewal and as of the date of loss, this was irrelevant since the plaintiff's eligibility for the renewal hinged on the representations made in the initial application.
Naseef v Wallside, Inc., unpublished per curiam decision of the Michigan Court of Appeals docket number 329505 (2017), in which the Michigan Court of Appeals affirmed summary disposition we obtained in the trial court that the defendant Wallside, Inc. who had hired an independent contractor to service the plaintiff was not responsible for any alleged negligence in performance by the independent contractor.
State Farm v National General Insurance Company, U. S. District Court for Western District of Michigan (2017), in which State Farm sought reimbursement from National General Insurance Company for no fault benefits paid to Marvin Cannon. After discovery we filed a motion for summary judgment on behalf of National General Insurance Company that State Farm had sued the wrong insurer and had failed to amend the complaint before the statute of limitations expired for filing a no fault claim. The trial court granted summary judgment finding that State Farm had sued the wrong insurer, that it was the wrong insurer not just the wrong name, and denied State Farm's motion to amend on the basis that no good cause had been shown.
Auto-Owners Insurance Company v Integon National Insurance Company, unpublished per curiam decision of the Michigan Court of Appeals docket number 321396 (2015), in which Auto-Owners sought reimbursement from Integon of $838,610.48 in no fault benefits and $56,470.45 in legal expenses paid by Auto-Owners for catastrophic injuries incurred by Terry Dunn in a single vehicle accident while occupying a vehicle driven by his wife Laura Dunn. Auto-Owners had issued a no fault policy to Terry Dunn’s parents with whom he lived at the time of the accident. Auto-Owners argued that a North Carolina auto policy issued by Integon to Laura Dunn should be required to provide Michigan no fault coverage per MCL 300.3012, claiming that Integon had knowledge that Laura and Terry Dunn were moving to Michigan and required Michigan no fault coverage. The trial court had ruled that Integon had such notice and that Terry Dunn was a “named insured” and thus Integon owed reimbursement to Auto-Owners. We filed an appeal to the Michigan Court of Appeals and the Court of Appeals reversed the trial court and ordered entry of judgment in favor of Integon that Integon did not have notice that Laura and Terry Dunn had relocated to Michigan and did not need to reach the issue whether Terry Dunn was a “named insured”.
Depositors Insurance Company v Henika, unpublished per curiam decision of the Michigan Court of Appeals docket number 318269 (2014), in which the Michigan Court of Appeals affirmed summary disposition we obtained in the trial court that the insurer had no duty to provide coverage or a defense to the insured son in regard to three wrongful death claims resulting from an auto accident on the basis that serving minors with alcoholic beverages was not an “occurrence”.
Hatcher v Nationwide Insurance, 610 Fed Appx 507 (6th Cir, 2015), where the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed our summary judgment for a fire loss claim in excess of $350,000 on the basis that the insurance policy was properly rescinded because of a material misrepresentations made in the application.
Nationwide Mutual Fire Insurance Company v McDermott, 603 Fed Appx 374 (6th Cir, 2015), where the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed summary disposition we obtained in regard to a $490,000 fire loss on the basis that coverage was barred because the insured failed to comply with the policy condition to advise of the change in use or occupancy of the premises and also affirmed that plaintiff had to reimburse Nationwide for payments made after the loss including to the loss payee.
Williams v Nationwide Mutual Fire Insurance Company, 2014 WL 2558328 (ED Mich, 2014), in which we obtained a summary judgment in regard to a homeowner damage claim in excess of $280,000 on the basis that the plaintiff failed to timely file a proof of loss.
Telerico v Nationwide Mutual Fire Insurance Company, 529 Fed Appx 729 (6th Cir, 2013), in which the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the summary judgment we obtained in the trial court that the plaintiffs’ claim for property damage was not covered by the policy because the plaintiff failed to timely file a proof of loss and failed to comply with the common law “mailbox rule” to raise a rebuttal presumption that the proof of loss had been received by Nationwide.
Jackson v PVS Transportation, unpublished per curiam decision of the Michigan Court of Appeals docket number 315137 (2013), the Court of Appeals reversed the trial court and ordered summary disposition in favor of the defendants, agreeing with our argument that we established through discovery that the plaintiff was a Michigan resident who had failed to obtain a Michigan no fault policy which thus barred him from making any third party auto claim. The court further agreed with our argument that the plaintiff could not raise an issue of fact by filing an affidavit to contradict his prior testimony and interrogatory answers.
Allard v Sova and Clarkston Steel, unpublished per curiam decision of the Michigan Court of Appeals docket number 285633 (2010), lv den 488 Mich 1040 (2011) affirming summary disposition that although the defendants’ truck drove into a median to avoid a rear end accident, this could not have proximately caused the alleged injuries to the plaintiff who was in a vehicle which swerved to avoid the defendants’ truck.

Smith v Nationwide, 2010 WL 5158538 (6th Cir, 2010), in which the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the trial court's dismissal of the plaintiffs' complaint based on discovery abuses.
Huda v Integon National Insurance Company, 2008 WL 345513 (6th Cir, 2008), in which the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed summary judgment granted on the basis that the plaintiff's claim for insurance coverage was barred because the policy was properly rescinded due to misrepresentations made in the application for the policy.
