Craig Streit, et al. v. Farmers Group, Inc., et al.

Case No. BC434852

Superior Court of the State of California in Los Angeles County

Notice of Class Action Settlement

If you cancelled a Farmers property or vehicle insurance policy in California, this class action settlement may affect your rights.

Three former insurance policyholders, the “Class Representatives”, have sued Farmers Group, Inc., Fire Insurance Exchange (FIE), Mid-Century Insurance Company (Mid-Century), and Fire Underwriters Association (collectively “Farmers”), alleging that Farmers violated California law as described in the Notice. All of the claims asserted in the Class Representatives’ lawsuit have been certified for class action treatment. Farmers and Plaintiffs have entered into a proposed class settlement of the claims against Farmers. You are receiving the Notice because records show that you may have had one or more FIE or Mid-Century insurance policies covering your property or your vehicle, and that you cancelled one or more of the policies before the end of the policy term. You have legal rights and options that you may exercise before the Court finally approves the proposed settlement. The Notice contains important information that may affect you. Please read it carefully.
