RV Client Not Liable for Damages

California
Feb 05, 2009

State Farm v. Newmar Corp.

CASE RESULTS DEPEND UPON A VARIETY OF FACTORS UNIQUE TO EACH CASE. CASE RESULTS DO NOT GUARANTEE OR PREDICT A SIMILAR RESULT IN ANY FUTURE CASE.

A California judge found in July that defendant RV component part manufacturer was not responsible for a fire that destroyed the owner's RV. During this week-long bench trial, it was found that the defendant did not manufacture the culprit part, and therefore did not have to reimburse the owner's insurance company for damages.
