Please be advised that on March 22, 2005, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Wendell Mortimer issued an Order in the matter entitled Insurance Commissioner of the State of California v. Fremont Indemnity Company, Case No. BS083582, an "Order Enjoining Service on Fremont Indemnity Company or Insurance Commissioner of Third Party Subpoenas in Matters Pending Before California Workers Compensation Appeals Board or Equivalent Boards and Agencies in Other States," which provides in pertinent part:

  1. All persons are enjoined from serving subpoenas on Fremont or the Insurance Commissioner in matters unrelated to claims covered by insurance policies issued by Fremont Indemnity Company pending before the California Workers Compensation Appeals Board and other equivalent boards and agencies in other states, except on order from the Court obtained after reasonable notice to the Insurance Commissioner.
  2. All persons seeking relief from the injunction from the court must demonstrate that a good faith effort has been made to obtain the requested records and information from other sources, and that such records and information are not available from other sources.

What this means:
  1. If you are attempting to serve a subpoena on Fremont Indemnity Company, or the Insurance Commissioner, for claim records where Fremont is not a party to the claim being actively litigated, your subpoena will not be accepted. This process does not prejudice a third parties' ability to file an Application in Department 307-CCW of the Los Angeles County Superior Court for relief from the order. Such Application must demonstrate good cause to include a showing that the information and/or documents being sought from the Liquidator of Fremont Indemnity Company are not available from any other sources. Copies of the Application must be served on counsel for the Liquidator: Raymond B. Jue, Deputy Attorney General California Department of Justice, Office of the Attorney General, 300 South Spring Street, Suite 1702, Los Angeles, California, 90013, telephone 213-897-2480.
  2. If you are serving process on Fremont Indemnity Company as a party to any litigation matter, the agent for service is Scott Pearce, 425 Market Street, San Francisco, California, 94105, telephone 415-676-5000.
