Fidelity National Title's Manager West Region


In July 2010 the Manager West Region honored by Reconsideration Request and the Fifth assigned Claims Counsel on July 22, 2010 considered the matter concluded and closed.  But four days later the Manager West Region emailed "If you would like to provide us with an appraisal from a certified appraiser we would be more than willing to review it."

I spoke to different advisers who felt that this matter was still then open but that the actions of Fidelity National Title warranted other actions as the loss at this point was more than just the loss of actual easement but also the loss of the ability to market the property.

And one of the things also that had made an impression on me by this time was that the job of the Claims Counsel was not to help me as the insured but rather to represent the bottom line and profitability of the company itself.
