California Supreme Court Decides in Favor of Plaintiff in Nickerson v. Stonebridge Ins. Co
On June 9, 2016, the California Supreme Court decided Nickerson v. Stonebridge Ins. Co., which I argued in April. The Court unanimously held that so-called “Brandt fees” in insurance bad-faith cases could be included in the calculation of punitive damages.
Thanks to my co-counsel, Bill Shernoff, his team, and my son Clint Ehrlich, who helped me on the briefing. It’s an honor to be making new bad-faith law with Bill Shernoff.
