Surjit Singh v. 21st Century Insurance

Petitioner Surjit Singh brings a petition to vacate a binding contractual arbitration award issued in case 17CV316384, on Mr. Singh’s claim under the uninsured motorist coverage provided by his insurance policy with 21st Century Insurance.

The petition is GRANTED and the arbitration award is VACATED, under Code of Civil Procedure §§1286.2(a)(6), 1286.4, and 1281.9(a)(1), (5) and (6).

The court has not considered any evidence of settlement negotiations and offers before the arbitration award, as such evidence is irrelevant and inadmissible under Evidence Code §§1152, 350 and 352.

This case is ordered related to 17CV316384, which is petitioner’s original claim for uninsured motorist benefits, filed on 9/27/17. Case 17CV316384 is set for Case Status Review re Arbitration on 10/25/18 at 10 a.m. in Department 19.
