On December 30, 2019, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals denied petitions for panel rehearing and rehearing en banc in Monster Energy Co.
This case was previously highlighted as being before the California Supreme Court on two questions of state insurance law certified by the Ninth Circuit: (1) is the notice-prejudice rule a fundamental public policy for purposes of choice of law analysis; and (2) if so, does the rule apply to the consent provision of the insurance policy at issue in this case.
At last, a California appellate decision has provided clear instructions on how to draft a settlement agreement with payments secured by a judgment that will stand up in court.
