 McKissock & Hoffman, P.C. | Attorneys at Law   (Site not responding. Last check: )
It found that the insurer had not acted in bad faith by requiring a release or seeking arbitration because the policy provided for arbitration in the event that the parties "do not agree as to the amount of damages", and there was a dispute between the parties as to the amount owed to the plaintiff.
The court concluded that therefore, the insurer did not have a reasonable basis for refusing to defend and recklessly disregarded the clear absence of a reasonable basis, and summary judgment was entered in the insured’s favor.
The court reasoned that the insurer’s obligation to pay was contingent on the insured’s continued care by a physician and inability to perform the regular duties of his employment, and that the insured had presented no evidence that the insurer’s conduct was frivolous, unfounded or motivated by ill will or reckless disregard of his interests.

 Hodge v. Kirkpatrick Development, Inc. (State Farm General Ins., Co.) (2005) [ Cal.App.4th ]   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The court held dismissal of the insurer's intervention complaint was erroneous because the insurer, having timely intervened, was entitled to proceed with the lawsuit notwithstanding the insured's failure to timely file the proof of service of summons.
A subrogated insurer's right to intervene should not depend on a predetermination whether the defense of splitting a cause of action will succeed; it is enough the defense is available in a second lawsuit and may, in the statute's words, "as a practical matter impair or impede" (Code Civ.
Denying the subrogated insurer the right to intervene because of the mere possibility the responsible third party might withhold or waive the defense of splitting a cause of action in a second lawsuit would give that third party the ability to force the insureds and the insurers to pursue their claims through two separate lawsuits.

The Wisconsin Insurance Security Fund (involved in the case because the employer's WC insurer had been liquidated) argued there was a nonindustrial cause, but the commission and the court rejected this.
The commission interprets the court's explanatory statement that Kallstrom's right to compensation was "not at stake" to mean that BPA must absorb the loss and cannot come after Kallstrom personally for the medical expenses paid.
