Setting California bounty-hunters against insurers



On hold just temporarily, or dead for this session? "On January 6, Assembly Member Marty Block pulled his bill, AB 989, before it could be heard before the Assembly Insurance Committee. The bill would have let private lawyers become self-deputized vigilantes and go after insurance companies to get damages and -- no surprise -- attorney's fees. It would allow lawsuits against insurers by anyone alleging to be harmed -- including people who aren't even policyholders." [California Civil Justice; background from John Sullivan, Capitol Weekly]
