Partner Lily Nierenberg Obtains Summary Judgment in Favor of Insurer in East Troublesome Fire case

Partner Lily Nierenberg obtained summary judgment in favor of an insurance company in a case stemming from an insurance claim related to the total loss of a property in the East Troublesome Fire. The Court held plaintiffs had failed to put forth evidence that they were owed additional amounts under the policy, or that the insurance company had unreasonably delayed any covered amounts that it had paid. The Court further held that there was no dispute on the question of whether the insurance company had handled the claim in good faith, especially as it had paid more than $400,000 within a month of the loss, followed by the policy limits well within a year.
