On January 29, 2024, Nicole Cassata argued before the Supreme Court of New Jersey on behalf of the New Jersey Defense Association, Amicus Curiae in the matter of  Goyco v. Progressive Insurance Company.   The issue presented before the Court was whether the plaintiff, David Goyco, was eligible for Personal Injury Protection benefits as a pedestrian while operating a low speed electric scooter.  On behalf of the NJDA, Ms. Cassata argued that it would be against public policy to amend the definition of pedestrian to include operators of low speed electric scooters, motor scooters, e-bikes, etc, as premiums would likely increase for all automobile insureds in the State of New Jersey.
