Supreme Court of the State of Oklahoma

For week ended May 22.

State of Oklahoma, ex rel. Oklahoma Bar Association, vs. David A. Kaserman, SCBD No. 4570.

In the decision, the court ordered that the resignation of David A. Kaserman, pending disciplinary proceedings be approved. Kaserman had two grievances filed against him: converting trust funds to his personal benefit and allowing the statute of limitations to run in his representation of a client. In ordering his resignation be approved, the court also ordered that Kaserman's name be stricken from the roll of attorneys.

Oklahoma Court of Civil Appeals

Winfred Nimrod Graham, vs. Travelers Insurance Co., No. 95,318.

In 1997, Winfred Nimrod Graham was involved in an automobile accident while employed by and on duty for CKE Restaurants. CKE had an automobile policy with Travelers Insurance Co., which included UM/ UIM coverage. Pursuant to that policy, Graham sought UIM benefits; however, Travelers denied his claim.

Graham appealed.

On appeal, the court noted that the issue of whether 36 O.S.

In its ruling, the court stated that its holding was consistent with the purpose of Oklahoma's Uninsured Motorist Act, which is to place the insured in the same position he would have been in if the negligent uninsured motorist had complied with Oklahoma laws concerning financial responsibility. See Moser v. Liberty Mut. Ins. Co., 731 P.2d 406, 408 (Okla. 1986).
