SJC seeks amicus briefs on attorney's fees for PIP cases

The Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts is seeking amicus briefs in the following case:

Barron Chiropractic & Rehabilitation vs. Norfolk & Dedham Group

Whether an insurer can be liable for costs and attorney's fees in an action pursuant to G. L. c. 90, � 34M, on a claim that it failed to pay PIP benefits in accordance with the statute, if the insurer, allegedly for business reasons unrelated to the merits of the litigation, tenders payment of the full amount of the disputed benefits after the commencement of the action but before a judgment has entered against it.

Scheduled for March argument.
