Mr. & Mrs. Sanders filed a lawsuit against State Farm for breach of contract arising out of a Hurricane Irma property damage claim. The parties agreed to participate in an out-of-court appraisal process. State Farm filed a motion claiming that the appraiser selected by Sanders was not a “disinterested” appraiser as required by the Homeowner Policy. The trial court allowed the appraiser, and State Farm appealed. The Third District Court of Appeal denied State Farm’s petition and certified both conflict and a question of great public importance to this Court.
