Representative Cases

  • Greenfield v. Westchester Fire Ins. Co., 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 47716 (E.D.N.Y. Mar. 17, 2022)

Izak was a member of a litigation team that in March 2022 won summary judgment in the Eastern District of New York on behalf of Westchester Fire Insurance Co. in a case involving coverage for a corporate officer under a Directors & Officers (D&O) policy. Citing specific policy language, the court held that contempt proceedings against the officer in 2018 arose out of Interrelated Wrongful Acts and prior claims that were made before the start of Westchester’s 2017-2018 claims-made policy.

  • Conduent State Healthcare, LLC v. AIG Specialty Ins. Co., C. A. N18C-12-074 MMJ CCLD

Izak was one of three London Fischer trial attorneys that persuaded a Delaware Superior Court jury in February 2022 to find that Conduent State Healthcare LLC engaged in insurance fraud and bad faith in its $236 million settlement of a lawsuit filed against it by the state of Texas under the Texas Medicaid Fraud Prevention Act. The jury also found that Conduent breached its duties under the policy to cooperate and to seek written consent in connection with the settlement. The coverage action arose out of the settlement of the lawsuit seeking $2 billion in civil penalties and treble damages from Conduent for allegedly having misrepresented the thoroughness of its review of prior authorization applications for Medicaid orthodontic services. The settlement was the largest ever obtained by the Texas Attorney General’s Office.
