“A Breath of Life for Calif. FCA Insurance Coverage,” Insurance Law Update

In the June Insurance Law Update, Partner Jan A. Larson and Summer Associate Sebastian Brady highlight a Ninth Circuit decision in Office Depot Inc. v. AIG Specialty Insurance.  The case concerns the question of whether California law precludes insurance coverage for losses incurred in connection with alleged violations of the California False Claims Act.  “In breathing life back into the lawsuit, the Ninth Circuit held that such coverage is not categorically precluded by California law,” they observe.  The Update was republished in Law360.
