Bischel vs. Fire Insurance Exchange

Year: 1991
Court: California Supreme Court
Case Number: SO24563

In a letter supporting a petition for review, UP urged the California Supreme Court to determine whether the appellate court’s holding really does support insurers’ position that guaranteed replacement cost policies do not include coverage for code upgrades. UP was contacted by thousands of homeowners following the Oakland Hills Firestorm that reported this problem. This was UP’s first amicus letter.
