INSURERS: Decisions and Rulings

Precedential Decisions and Precedential Decision Portions

The Insurance Commissioner decides numerous disputes pursuant to authority granted under the Insurance Code. Some of the final decisions arising from these adjudications have been designated as "precedential," pursuant to Government Code section 11425.60. That is, the policies and holdings in these decisions can be relied upon by parties to current cases, cited in their briefs and also relied upon by the Administrative Law Judge in making a proposed decision.

Recent Decisions and Rulings of Note

Members of the public have expressed interest in having access to certain Commissioner decisions that are not precedential and certain Administrative Law Judge rulings that are not precedential.  While these decisions and rulings do not necessarily indicate that another administrative law judge will follow or has even seen the reasoning set forth in those decisions and rulings published here, a request from a member of the public to see a recent decision or ruling will be accomodated by posting it here for a limited time.
