May 17 13
QBE Specialty Insurance Company, Wells Fargo Bank and Wells Fargo Insurance, Inc. are settling for up to $19.25 million a class-action federal lawsuit in Florida over lender-placed insurance, a product that has faced legal and regulatory scrutiny in recent years. Settlement papers were filed May 13, 2013 and a judge needs to approve them. The case has been in litigation for two years and, according to the settlement papers, is the only recent certified class-action suit dealing with lender-placed insurance, which is also known as force-placed insurance. Separate from the settlement are attorneys' fees and costs, which could be as much as $5.5 million. A judge needs to approve that amount, too. There is also $20,000 in class representative awards that could be paid out, according to the settlement papers. The original plaintiffs filed suit alleging lender-placed insurance premiums are excessive and include undisclosed and unearned commissions, the suit said. It also alleged certain tracking expenses were illegally included in the lender-placed insurance premiums. QBE and Wells Fargo deny all the allegations made against them and do not admit to anything in settling the case. The settlement amount is 25% of the premiums paid by members of the class. The settlement also includes to provide a 25% premium credit to those who have been billed but not yet paid. Records show lender-placed insurance premiums paid by the class amounted to about $77 million. The value of refunds and credits has been estimated to be as high as $19.25 million.
