Hot Mic in Remote Court Call Catches Claims Specialist Cursing Judge

 Wednesday, May 5, 2021


An insurance agent was caught on hot mic swearing at a Bay Area judge, court documents and transcripts say.

‘Oh my god,’ Vince San Filippo said during the Santa Clara County Superior Court hearing April 21. ‘This f—ing judge is an idiot.’

San Filippo, an insurance claims agent with Liberty Mutual, was monitoring the case for the company on behalf of Doris Luci, a woman who rear-ended a car with two passengers in San Jose in 2016 and has since died.

Silvia Rosaliano and Kevin Lazo, the plaintiffs, were awarded $714,000.

But he forgot to mute his audio in the remote Microsoft Teams call, and Judge Roberta Hayashi heard the whole thing.
