Safelite Wins Dispute With Rival

A Pennsylvania court has ruled in favor of Safelite Group Inc. in a lawsuit by a competitor that claimed Safelite was taking advantage of its outsourcing contracts with auto insurers to steer business to itself.

Kingston, Pa.-based Diamond Triumph Auto Glass Inc. filed the lawsuit in 2002, saying Safelite misled customers who arranged auto glass replacements through its call centers about their options for choosing repair shops. Safelite handles claims for a variety of insurers in addition to its core business of making repairs.

The court declined to dismiss six out of seven of Columbus-based Safelite's counterclaims against Diamond Triumph, which include state commercial bribery, defamation, false advertising, intentional interference with business relations, unfair competition and breach of contract. It dismissed Safelite's federal commercial bribery claim.
