GALVESTON — A Galveston insurance company is suing a Georgia man, seeking damages over an alleged contract breach.
Standard Life and Accident Insurance Company filed a lawsuit Aug. 13 in Galveston County District Court against Arthur J. Geiss of Cummings, Georgia, citing breach of contract.
According to the complaint, Standard Life hired Geiss as a marketing general agent in 2012 to independently solicit applications for insurance policies. The suit says Geiss received advance payment from Standard Life on more than 17,000 commissions.
The suit alleges Geiss failed to bring in the amount of new insurance policy applications for which he received advanced payment. The plaintiff says Geiss is in debt to Standard Life.
Standard Life and Accident seeks damages of more than $685,000, plus court costs and interest. It is represented by attorneys Andrew J. Mytelka and Jeanne Urbani Walser of Greer, Herz & Adams in Galveston.
