Are Indemnity Agreements Discoverable

Posted by on September 11, 2021

Alan Hall, Tempus Global Data and Island Park (together “Hall accused”) claim that these documents cannot be found because they are privileged and are irrelevant to the claims and defenses in the complaint. In Catholic Mutual Relief Society v. Superior Court, 64 Cal.Rptr.3d 434 (Cal. 2007), the California Supreme Court ruled that a California law allowing the preliminary disclosure of a defendant`s liability insurance information did not allow plaintiffs to obtain copies of a non-liable insurer`s reinsurance agreements. Courts sometimes struggle to find agreements of common interest. Signed contracts are common when two or more people do business together. The contract may include exemption and insurance provisions. Under these provisions, one party is protected against the remedies of the other party (e.g.B. , actions brought as a result of an assault at work). The compensation provider in the agreement undertakes to protect and insure the other party (the person liable for the compensation). Parties who make compensation and insurance arrangements are legally required to read and understand their rights and obligations. Courts dealing with doctrine of common interest rarely, if at all, refer to the provisions of the relevant agreements of common interest. Instead, the courts consider the context, not the agreements.

Participants of common interest should remember that they cannot automatically enter into a contract for the protection of privileges and that about half of agreements of common interest fail. That court concludes that the joint defence agreements are not relevant to the parties` respective claims and/or defences. That court has carried out an in-depth examination of the case-law and considers that the decision taken in Warren is particularly useful. The Warren Court rejected the applicant`s request to impose the joint defence agreement on the ground that he could not be found; the court never came to the question of privilege. See Warren, 2008 WL 4371763, at *2. The General Court found that the relevance of a common defence agreement depended on its language and therefore re-examined the agreement under the JURISDICTION OF THE EUROPEAN Union.
