The Fourth District Court of Appeal in Saris v. State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company, determined that a uninsured motorist policy provision requiring the insured or policyholder to sue the owner or driver of an insured motor vehicle was void against public policy.  Therefore, the Plaintiff does not have to sue the tortfeasor prior bringing suit against the uninsured motorist carrier.
