John is still busy writing software. Here’s a great piece from Nick Kostakis from New Jersey.

A year or so ago, I wrote an article for NJA dealing with low-balled estimates, arbitrary parts discounts, a breakdown in the insurer-repairer relationship, and the use of the Appraisal Clause to overcome these obstacles. That story involved Allstate with a $1,400 original estimate and a $3,000 supplement generated by invoking the Appraisal Clause.
