MEMORANDUM DECISION - NOT FOR PUBLICATION
Jason Tye Myers (" Myers" ) appeals the trial court's decisions to grant Charles Deets III's (" Deets" ) motion to dismiss and to grant Great American Insurance Group's (" Great American" ) motion for summary judgment. Myers raises two issues that we restate as:
I. Whether the trial court erred by granting Deets's motion to dismiss, where Myers failed to open an estate and establish a special representative to serve as a defendant in his cause of action against Deets, a deceased person; and
II. Whether the trial court erred in granting Great American's motion for summary judgment that asserted Great American did not provide coverage for Deets at the time of the alleged conduct giving rise to Myers's complaint against Deets.
