A woman in the United States had sex in a car and contracted an STD. Now the court is telling the insurance company to pay him $5.2 million

An American woman could receive up to $5.2 million in damages after contracting a sexually transmitted disease during sex in her Geico-insured automobile with a former romantic partner.

In February 2021, the lady, named MO in court filings, told Geico that she planned to sue for $1 million in damages for a 2017 sexual encounter with her then-significant other, identified as MB, at the during which she allegedly caught the human papilloma virus (HPV).

The Jackson County woman said the man who allegedly infected her was aware of her illness as well as the dangers of having unprotected sex, according to court documents.

Due to Geico’s refusal to accept the original settlement, the matter was referred to arbitration.

The MO and MB having sex inside their automobile “directly caused or directly contributed to causing” the STD, according to the arbitrator in May 2021.

MB was found guilty of failing to notify his former partner of his infection status, and MO was awarded $5.2 million in damages, to be paid by Geico.

The insurance company previously requested the dismissal of the multimillion-dollar award, saying it violated Geico’s due process rights. Geico appealed after the claim was denied.

The verdict against Geico in the previous arbitration was ruled valid in an opinion drafted Tuesday by a three-judge panel.
