Plaintiff, Cameron Parish School Board (“the School Board”) filed a complaint against RSUI Indemnity Company for breach of contract for failure to timely and properly adjust covered losses, and for bad faith in violation of several Louisiana statutes. The School Board filed three separate motions to compel against the defendant, one of which was a motion to compel the production of reinsurance information. Following in camera review of certain documents withheld by the defendant on privilege grounds, as well as a review of three separate privilege logs, the court concluded that even though the reinsurance information was not relevant to plaintiff’s breach of contract claim, the information might be probative of bad faith, and therefore relevant to plaintiffs’ statutory claims. As such, the court ordered the Defendant to produce items listed on their Underwriting Log. Cameron Parish School Bd. v. RSUI Indem. Co., Case No. 2:06-cv-1970 (W.D.La. July 23, 2008).
