In Pak v. First American Title Insurance Company, Los Angeles Superior Court Case No. 18STCV04840, William Wright obtained a judgment of dismissal for the Firm’s client, First American Title Insurance Company. The case concerned claims for breach of title policy and bad faith relating to a commercial property in Los Angeles. The Court sustained First American’s demurrers without leave to amend, agreeing with Mr. Wright that First American had no duty of defense or indemnification in light of the individual plaintiffs’ prior conveyance of the property to their LLC, which conveyance terminated coverage as a matter of law pursuant to Condition 2 of the policy.
