Asserting An Unfair Competition Claim Against Insurer

By Lynna Harrison, Association News Network, Inc. Photos by Lynna Harrison

Central Coast Claims Association welcomed as their guest Speaker, Gail Stargardter, with Archer Norris firm, at their March 20th Luncheon. Ms Stargardter spoke about the California Supreme Court’s recent decision in Zhang V Superior Court, 57 Cal.4th364 (2013), which held that Moradi-Shalal v Fireman’s Fund Ins. Companies, 46 Cal3d287 (1988) does not preclude an insured from asserting an Unfair competition claim against its insurer based on conduct that violates both the Unfair Insurance Practices Act (UIPA) or the Cartwright Act. In other words , the Court held that an insured may file a claim for Unfair Competition based on conduct prohibited by the UIPA if that conduct is also independently actionable under the common law of insurance bad faith. Gail said there is great misrepresentation on Insurance Company TV ads. She said there are two troublesome ads on TV. The first she described is a State Farm ad that depicts a man eating pizza and, when he wishes for more pizza, it appears. He wishes for girls and a hot tub and, poof, a State Farm agent appears and says State Farm will bring you whatever you want. She also told of a Nationwide ad that says “whatever they take from you we will replace.” “That doesn’t mean that if you have a 30 year old television they will give you a new 52 inch flatscreen TV if your television is Stolen.” There was a demur filed on the Zhang vs Superior Court case and it is off to trial. The March meeting 50/50 raffle drawing of $70 was won by Central Coast Claims Association President, JoAnn Dean. Join us April 17th for our next Luncheon at Scott’s Seafood Restaurant, 185 Park Ave., in downtown San Jose. The speaker will be Attorney Bill Manning on Product Liability Law.

Central Coast Claims Association News Network • April 2014

It’s National Asbestos Awareness Week! By Haven Fry, JM Environmental, Inc

April 2014

National Asbestos Awareness Week is an annual event to warn and educate people about the dangers of exposure to asbestos containing building materials, and the prevalence of asbestos related diseases, such as mesothelioma. As we all know, asbestos is still being mined, imported, and used despite being confirmed as a human carcinogen. 55 countries have banned asbestos, but the United States has not. Asbestos fibers can be nearly 700 times smaller than human hair. They are odorless, tasteless, indestructible fibers that can remain suspended in the air. Asbestos fibers can be inhaled easily and are difficult for the lungs to expel.

Product Liability Law at April 17 CCCA Continued from page 7

probate matters. In the Aviation arena, Mr. Manning represents airport districts, pilots, mechanics, fixed base operators, and aviation insurers. Mr. Manning’s product liability practice ranges from aircraft and motor vehicles, to large and small consumer products, tires and wheels, pharmaceutical products, and medical devices. Mr. Manning represents national motor vehicle manufacturers in Product Liability and Consumer Warranty (i.e., "lemon law") litigation throughout California. Mr. Manning’s non-legal experience is also a strong asset to his clients. He has several years of engineering and technical writing experience in the fields of nuclear engineering, marine engineering, and motor vehicle and consumer product manufacturing, and decades of experience in aviation as a Commercial Pilot and Certificated Flight Instructor. Military service: United States Navy, Vietnam era veteran. Invite your collegues, associates, clients and friends to join you for what promises to be a most enlightening session.

Abatement is defined as the procedures to control fiber release from asbestos containing materials, typically during removal. Abatement includes removal, encapsulation, enclosure, demolition and renovation activities related to asbestos. The California Health and Safety Code 25915 requires all building owners in the State of California to provide written notification to employees, tenants and contractors of the presence and location of asbestos containing construction materials within their buildings. Asbestos containing construction materials are defined as any materials with an asbestos content of greater than one tenth of one percent (>0.1%). Under the U.S. EPA National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) regulation, no visible emissions are allowed during building demolition or renovation activities, which involve regulated asbestos containing materials. For this reason all buildings must be surveyed for asbestos containing materials prior to demolition or renovation. The EPA, and or local Air Quality Management District must be notified prior to any building demolition even if no asbestos containing material is present. NESHAP requires removal of all asbestos containing materials which have or will become friable prior to any demolition or renovation activities. California and Nevada Laws require that specially licensed asbestos abatement contractors perform work with asbestos containing materials. Additionally, Federal OSHA, California OSHA and Nevada OSHA require employers to implement specific work practices which protect workers from airborne asbestos exposure. JM ENVIRONMENTAL, INC., is a registered contractor licensed by the state of California and the state of Nevada to perform Hazardous Materials Abatement and Demolition.
