Typically even partial fee will not be sufficient to determine good religion as a matter of regulation.  In Rutledge Inv’s L L C v. Scottsdale Ins. Co., No. 2:21-CV-00364, 2022 WL 3704212 (W.D. La. Aug. 26, 2022), the Court docket denied the property provider’s “movement for partial abstract judgment to dismiss” a “unhealthy religion declare associated to Hurricane Laura.”

This even if the file reveals that the provider made an advance fee one week after the Hurricane struck and, additional, that the provider agreed to “situation fee on the undisputed declare” 5 weeks after that.  Rutledge, 2022 WL 3704212, at *1.

Proof of loss:  advances are the topic of § 2:10 by Dennis J. Wall, in JOHN Okay. DiMUGNO, STEVEN PLITT, and DENNIS J. WALL, CATASTROPHE CLAIMS / INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR DISASTERS (Thomson Reuters Could 2022 Version).
