Insurance companies have a right to compel claimants to be interviewed under oath, the state’s supreme court ruled today. The ruling reversed a lower court decision last year that said insurers have no such right because examinations under oath (EUOs) are not specifically written into the state’s no-fault law. The closely watched decision was hailed as a major victory for insurers and the fraud-fighting community. "EUOs are a vital tool to help deter and prosecute fraud. This ruling will aid fraud-fighting efforts and help keep premiums in check," said Dennis Jay, executive director of the Coalition Against Insurance Fraud.
