Fidelity and Guaranty Insurance Company, et al. vs. German Motors Corp. et al.

Year: 2006
Court: California Supreme Court
Case Number: S158329

Letter brief requesting Petition for Review of Appellate decision. Under a garage keepers policy the phrase “necessary or incidental to” when evaluating scope of coverage is not supported by the broader interpretation contained in published opinions in other states or any published opinions in California. Allowing the restrictive interpretation of the Appellate Court to stand contravenes California’s long standing interest in finding ways to grant, rather than deny, insurance coverage. See Mariscal v. Old Republic Life Ins. Co. (1996) 42 CA 4th 1617.

UP’s letter brief was written pro bono by Alice J. Wolfson, Esq.
