Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen and Insurance Department Commissioner Thomas Leonardi responded to Safelite’s lawsuit by denying that the recently enacted auto glass anti-steering law unconstitutionally prohibits the glass shop’s commercial speech or otherwise violates the shop’s constitutional rights. The law requires a glass claims representative or a third-party claims administrator to inform the insured about his or her right to choose a glass repair shop. Safelite took issue with the law and sought an injunction halting its enforcement. The Attorney General and Insurance Commissioner deny that the law compels Safelite to make potentially false and misleading statements about other glass shops. GlassBytes (September 18, 2013).
