Politicians Join Hurricane Lawsuits

As thousands of devastated Gulf Coast residents continue to file suit against insurance companies that refuse to pay claims for flood damage, some high-level politicians are joining the fight.

U.S. Rep. Gene Taylor, D-Miss., joined other plaintiffs and filed suit against State Farm Fire & Casualty Co. for refusal to cover post-Katrina property damage. U.S. Sen. Trent Lott, R-Miss., and Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood are also among politicians who were affected by Hurricane Katrina and have decided to take their grievances to court.
