The October 29, 2013 edition of the Los Angeles Daily Journal featured Robert McKennon’s article entitled: “Clearing Up Murky Waters: Insurer’s Duty to Settle.” In it, Mr. McKennon discusses the California Court of Appeal’s decision in Reid v. Mercury Insurance Company, 2013 DJDAR 13436 (Cal. App. 2nd Dist. Oct. 7, 2013). The Reid case followed the uncertainty left by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision in Du v. Allstate Ins. Co., 697 F.3d 753 (9th Cir. 2012). The Reid case resolved some legal issues relating to whether, in the absence of a settlement demand within policy limits, an insurer owes its insured a duty to settle a claim.
