As I had predicted in August 2012, when the Court of Appeals issued its opinion in this case, the Supreme Court would likely have to further analyze the underlying issues regarding the meaning of an “unlawful taking” and therefore unauthorized use of a motorcycle or motor vehicle under Michigan’s No-Fault Act. I wrote extensively on this issue in my amicus curiae brief for Insurance Institute of Michigan in the case of Progressive v. DeYoung and then, in my earlier post, and noted the remaining underlying issues have yet to be resolved concerning coverage under these circumstances.
See the Supreme Court’s Order here, issued on May 1, 2013.
