Case Highlights

California – Insureds Can Depend on The Duty to Defend: The District Court for the Southern District of California held that a professional liability insurer has an obligation to defend its insured. The question of coverage arose from a case in which several of MG Properties’ customers alleged the company maintained unlawful security deposit policies, affecting some customers’ credit scores. Plaintiffs sought damages for defamation due to the allegedly unlawful policies and adverse credit effects. MG Properties sought coverage and defense under its professional liability policy. Its carrier denied the claim, citing illegal profits and conversion exclusions. The exclusions allegedly barred coverage and a legal defense when insureds gain any unlawful profit or when they misappropriated or commingled the funds of their customers with their own. MG Properties filed suit in federal court seeking relief in the form of a defense by its carrier while disputing the underlying case. The federal court sided with MG Properties and concluded the insurance carrier owes a duty to defend, which extends beyond the duty to indemnify. — From CLM Member Ty Maynarich

Nevada Businesses Brace for Ban on ‘Eroding Limits’ Liability Policies


“Ty M. Maynarich, an attorney with the Tyson Mendes law firm in Las Vegas, said in a blog post that the new law’s impact extends beyond prices and availability. He said policies that require the insureds to deplete self-insured retentions may violate the new law as a limitation on the coverage for costs of defense. He said insurers may seek declaratory relief more often to address coverage issues early in the claims process.”
