Gunder Suit Against State Farm Not Filed As Reported

An injunction by Florida shop owner Ray Gunder that aimed to block State Farm Insurance’s rollout of the PartsTrader parts procurement system in Florida was never filed in Polk County Florida Court as was previously reported by Autobody News and other news outlets. Attorney John Eaves Jr. announced in November 2013 at an industry meeting in Florida that an injunction was being filed on behalf of Gunder. The Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of Illinois later issued a release stating that the injunction was filed on November 20, 2013. However, it’s now reported that the injunction was never filed as intended. Brent Geohagan, Gunder's attorney, said that “certain tactical considerations and the potential inclusion of other parties, the lawsuit against State Farm with regard to PartsTrader was and has been put on hold temporarily and has not yet been filed as was otherwise originally intended to be done in November/December of last year.”
