In Batten v. State Farm Mutual Auto Insurance Co., 368 Ore. 538, 495 P.3d 1222, 2021 WL 4236688 (Ore. 2021) the Oregon Supreme Court struck down an insurance provision that effectively limited the insurer’s liability for UM/UIM coverage to the highest amount of available coverage under a single policy covering the insureds who had UM/UIM coverage available to them under more than one policy. The Court held the provision was unenforceable.
