Safeco Insurance Company of America Inc. Key Developments

The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California Dismisses an Unfair Competition Law Claim against Safeco Insurance Co. of America

The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California dismissed an unfair competition law claim brought by a homeowners' insured against his insurer arising from the insured's defense of an underlying action under a reservation of rights. The complaint failed to allege with specificity the factual basis of the insured's claim. Alan Gardner maintained homeowners' insurance under a policy issued by Safeco Insurance Co. of America. On Jan. 14, 2008, Gardner was named as a defendant in a state court action. Gardner tendered defense and indemnity of the action to Safeco, which defended under a reservation of rights. Gardner later sued Safeco for breach of contract, bad faith and related claims, alleging Safeco intentionally led him to believe that it was prosecuting his affirmative claims in the underlying action and that he relied on Safeco's related representations to his detriment. Gardner alleged Safeco failed to inform him of a potential conflict of interest and of Gardner's right to independent counsel arising from that conflict of interest.
