Been a while since i had time to post anything on this case and it does look it keeps on going.

LegalNewsline | Answers wanted from Rigsby sisters
GULFPORT, Miss. - E.A. Renfroe and Co., Inc., is seeking to force the two "whistleblower sisters" to answer questions to which their attorneys objected in a November Hurricane Katrina-related deposition.

"At the direction of their and plaintiffs' counsel, the Rigsbys have yet again refused to answer questions regarding their unauthorized use of State Farm computers and documents they admittedly stole from State Farm. Instead, they asserted claims of purported work product and attorney-client privilege," State Farm's motion says.

Kerri Rigsby and Cori Rigsby Moran claim the documents they obtained from State Farm proved the company was attempting to shortchange policyholders after Katrina by misrepresenting the amount of structural damage done by wind (covered by the policy) and water (covered by a federal program).
