TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- “We are pleased with the Florida Supreme Court’s decision in declining to accept jurisdiction of the matter between Allstate and the Office of Insurance Regulation (Office).
 
“We did not believe that there was any basis for the Court to extend jurisdiction in this matter, because the First District Court of Appeal’s decision was in full compliance with the laws of Florida.
 
“The Supreme Court’s decision reassures Floridians that the Office has full access to insurers’ books and records and upholds the Office’s actions in its efforts to protect consumers.”
